We at YWCA Westfield felt the shockwaves following the death of George Floyd.
We send our condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd, and of Ahmed Aubrey, and Breonna Taylor – to all victims of hate crime and communities of color.
We are also thinking of our sisters and brothers at YWCA Minneapolis and the whole Minneapolis-St. Paul community through this difficult and frightening time.
As an organization with a mission of eliminating racism, we believe we must all do ou
r part to promote and achieve racial equality. We MUST take a stand. We must unite in our vision of a community with peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
We invite you to take a stand in solidarity against racism in your community, here and beyond; today and every day.
