Dear Members of the MRW Alliance Community,
The past days and weeks have, once again, shone a spotlight on the tremendous injustices that plague our society. We are deeply saddened by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery – which have only further exposed the systemic racism in our nation. We stand with the Black community in demanding justice and equality – commitments that MRW makes as part of our mission.
Especially in this election year, it is essential that we are part of the work to heal and enact change, not create greater division. In order to be advocates for change, we are taking this moment to engage, listen and look inwardly. There is still a long way to go, and we invite the Mainstream community to do so alongside us.
To the Black members of our community and our state – we value your voice and your leadership, and MRW stands with you.
Jon Nehring, Board Chair & the MRW Alliance Board of Directors
