Northwest District Association mourns for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and other Black Americans killed by law enforcement each year. Our country’s foundational institutions are deeply rooted in white supremacy—we recognize that systemic change is the only way forward.

We also recognize that our organization can and must do more to work towards racial equity. We commit to educating ourselves and others about systemic and individual racism. We invite our neighbors, members and community partners to join and challenge us as we strive to do—and demand—better. Black lives matter. Black joy and prosperity matter, too.

“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” –Angela Davis
