BRIDGE Housing condemns the racist violence that continues to pervade our nation. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others were murdered as a result of rampant racism that we have not erased from our country’s history. We must do better. We stand with our staff, residents, community members and partners who deserve and demand justice.
The problems are heartbreaking, deeply ingrained, seemingly intractable. But we do not accept the status quo. We are striving to learn, listen and better understand what we must do to create and support change.
One thing we do know is that BRIDGE’s work is part of the antidote to systemic racism. We believe in sustaining and creating communities where people feel welcomed, respected and valued. We are committed to fair treatment and access to opportunity and advancement. Our core values guide us to respect the rights and dignity of others, to be accountable for our actions and to demonstrate compassion.
We are grateful to all who are working toward a more just and equitable future, and we join you in solidarity. Black Lives Matter.
