We stand with our neighbors in Minneapolis, Saint Paul and across Minnesota united in grief at the tragic death of George Floyd. We see and acknowledge the pain in our community. Many are experiencing tremendous hurt; this includes our own employees and the people we support.
Events this week demonstrate the importance and value of the work being done by many to further a just and fair society. The work toward dignity and respect for all people must continue.
Racism and discrimination go against the values and mission we hold as an organization dedicated to strengthening the resiliency in families experiencing the greatest disparities. We will continue to learn and advocate as we work earnestly toward our vision that all people are empowered to reach their full potential.
Today, we extend our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of George Floyd. We pray for peace, hope, healing and justice in our community.
George Floyd’s life and death matter.
Let us honor his life by working together to co-create a community where all of us find meaningful ways to truly love and respect one another.
