Words have power but actions have more power. We support Black Lives Matter out of a belief in the power of individuals to grow and solve problems through collective and personal actions. Black Lives Matter activists shined a powerful light on the problem of systemic inequity, racism and the oppression faced by the black community. The time to act is now!
We are committed to shedding light on the cause of these biases which result in systemic inequity. We are also committed to supporting iMentor, an organization that champions individual students, predominantly in communities of color, by supporting them on their goal of graduating from college, achieving professional success and beyond. We are part of a community that cares about justice and equity. Please join us on this journey.
