We would like to speak out after a difficult two weeks of watching the pain of racism on display in many communities. The violence and racism that took the lives of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, are wrong. Unfortunately these specific acts are part of a long list of senseless acts of racism in our culture and communities.
We stand by our Rethink employees, business partners and greater community as we call for an end to racism, inequity and social injustice.
Our Mission at Rethink is to inspire and empower individuals with developmental disabilities and those who support them. We believe that through knowledge and education we can change the world and help those around us to heal. Here is a brief video we created on teaching children to respond to social injustice, which you are welcome to share with others:
Please take care of yourselves, your families and your colleagues. We need to support each other now more than ever, and if there is anything we can do to support you as a Rethink partner, please let us know.
