On May 25th, George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis police officers. The injustice, caught on video, is something none of us should ever forget. On March 13th, Breonna Taylor was killed by Louisville police and charges have yet to be filed. These are just two names but we know the list of those unjustly treated by police goes on and on. This is deeply traumatic and unacceptable.
As an organization we acknowledge what is happening in our country. We must be explicit about standing for justice and call out inequity where it exists. My Sister's Place believes we are all better together and are united with all victims of violence and racism, in pursuit of justice and equality.
We must hold leaders and politicians accountable because words without action mean little and will not address these issues. We cannot continue to wait for change or ignore actions that inherently target communities that continually experience the impact of systemic racism.
We will continue to advocate for building a more just system for our community and for the people we serve. We know the work ahead of us is even more urgent.
We thank you for your support,
