As we face one of the difficult times in our nation’s history we want to send a message of support to the family of George Floyd and the entire African American Community to know we acknowledge and stand in solidarity with the notion that Black Lives do indeed matter. To that end, we will take a “pause” this week to reflect and honor those lives lost(past and present) to this senseless racism and hatred which has plagued our society for years. This includes cancelling this week’s update call.
We are fortunate to be members of such a diverse and caring industry and always rise to any occasion to be agents for change. We can’t stop now. In the words of the late Martin Luther King Jr. “We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right.”
