We mourn with the families of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Tony McDade, and countless others whose lives were stolen by state sanctioned police violence. We stand with Black communities reeling from the devastation of two pandemics—COVID-19 and racism. We support Black-led movements around the country by echoing the call to divest from policing and reinvest in Black communities.
We will not be silent at this pivotal moment in the movement. Today, and everyday, we are amplifying comrades who are doing powerful work and need your support. We are also sharing resources to assist with an anti-racist education. We won’t stop until Black lives are protected.
