The recent killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and others shine a harsh spotlight on the systemic discrimination and racial injustice that continue to pervade our culture. We are deeply moved and saddened by these events. We stand in solidarity with others against the persecution and inequities endured by people of color and other marginalized communities, and with those who seek a just society free of biases in which security and equal opportunity are enjoyed by all. We empathize with those who are angry and frustrated, and support the rights of all citizens to assemble and peacefully protest throughout the country. We believe it is imperative to listen to voices that long to be heard; we embrace truth and understanding; and we believe there is strength in promoting diversity, equity, inclusion, and respect in our workplace.
The stars offer hope. Look up and see that we share this world, together under the same celestial canvas.
