A Message to the WBF Community in Response to the Murder of George Floyd
We are heartbroken and outraged at the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Aubery, along with so many others, that expose the systemic racism that exists in our nation. We stand together with those individuals and communities working for justice, raising their voices and taking action to effect meaningful, structural change and to end, once and for all, the persistent racism that plagues our society.
At the center of the Women’s Bar Foundation’s mission is providing access to justice for low-income individuals, and underlying this work is our deep commitment to racial equity. Addressing persistent racial inequality cannot be separated from our work ensuring justice for domestic abuse survivors, incarcerated women, and elders.
We reaffirm our commitment to working towards racial equity and against racism with renewed urgency, and encourage our partners and our community to join us.
President, WBF Board of Trustees
