Global Citizen Year Statement on Black Lives Matter

We stand in solidarity against systemic racism, white supremacy and the ongoing oppression of the Black community. We denounce and will work actively against the systemic and institutional racism that underpins the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and countless other lives lost. We join in the national call for justice. We know these are not isolated incidents but are the outcomes of a country built upon the foundations of enslavement  and white supremacy. As an organization, and as individuals who make up our organization, we remain committed to bringing new ways of thinking, equitable institutions, and true justice to our global community. 

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”  James Baldwin
