ATIXA joins activists, organizations, and leaders throughout America to condemn the senseless deaths of George Floyd and countless other Black Americans. These are acts fueled by racism and hate. As an association whose mission is to advance equity, inclusion, and social justice for all persons, ATIXA embraces our brothers, sisters, and otherwise-identified allies who speak out concerning injustice and discrimination. Many of our members are in pain. We acknowledge their trauma and fear, and hold space for them to authentically demand that America not return to normal, but achieve a new normal in which Black people are safe, valued, and respected. We must do more than condemn, and as allies we are all responsible for elevating dialogue that will empower a reality where hate and violence are replaced with tolerance and compassion. Your association is in solidarity with our members at this time of need and social action.
