“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

“A riot is the language of the unheard.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

 

These are challenging times, and they become more so every day. The Death of George Floyd has set off a series of events that have led to protests, violence and civil unrest throughout the world.

As an attorney it is my job to fight injustice anyway I can. It is a sad yet true fact that racism still exists throughout the world and I want to do what I can to assist.

It is easy to go about our lives and forget that racism is experienced all over the world. Sadly, it takes moments of crisis to bring people together to fight against injustices.

At our firm we have discussed what is the best way to demonstrate our support for the African American Community and people of color. We wanted to prioritize actions over words.

Remember it starts with EDUCATION! Educating anyone who is willing to listen that racism, segregation and social inequality are UNACCEPTABLE! No one should be mistreated because of the color of their Skin, Race, Gender, Disability, Culture, or Religion. Below are ways you can help Black Lives Matter and support our African American brothers and sisters.
