We can’t send this message without saying something about the Black Lives Matter movement because it’s on the daily, just like Goddamn Man. We are outraged and deeply saddened by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless others who were murdered by police. We are also outraged at the inhumane and absolutely unacceptable lack of justice surrounding these deaths.
We support the Black Lives Matter movement and the call to Defund The Police in favor of community investment to lift people up out of poverty, unemployment, homelessness, substance abuse and behavioral health challenges. It’s time to stop solving these problems with indifference, guns and violence.
We stand in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters against institutional racism. Our commitment is to listen, learn and act in support of the BLM movement. There are many resources out there to facilitate this momentum. Here are some that help us keep it real.
