(In a statement to the public)

“May Institute stands in solidarity with those who speak out against systemic racism and oppression.

The death of George Floyd last week has unleashed wave after wave of anger, grief, frustration, and impatience across this country. It is painful to watch the footage of Floyd dying on the streets of Minneapolis, but it is also our responsibility not to turn away.

The essence of our work has always been to support and empower individuals and communities that often experience inequity. We will always advocate for the rights of the individuals we serve, for them to be treated with fairness and respect, and for their full inclusion in society. There is still much work to be done to get there. And to getting closer to building a society that refuses to accept racial inequality and injustice, and the pain and suffering they cause.”
