Dear Friends of 180,
Like many, we at 180 have been in shock at the horrific killing of a black man–George Floyd, witnessed in our own living rooms. This heinous, inhumane act joins thousands of such incidents over a great many years, and any words fall far short of expressing our outrage and deepest sorrow.
As an organization we denounce hatred, injustice, racism, oppression and violence. We value equality, kindness, understanding, and champion humanity in all of its beautiful and wondrous diversity.
We stand united with the black community and are committed to giving our clients, staff and volunteers a voice to help us evolve our programs and services to better support human rights now, and in the days and years to come. And while we may feel despair for the moment, we know deep in our hearts that together we can move forward and in time heal and flourish.
In solidarity,
Anna Diaz-White
Executive Director
