Standing in Solidarity
The MassHire Metro North Workforce Board is horrified, angered, and deeply saddened by the recent murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless other citizens as a result of police brutality and systemic racism. We recognize these incidents as examples, once again, of our society’s greatest failures. These longstanding systemic failures have resulted in violence, hatred, discrimination, and biases against our Black and Brown communities and citizens, perpetuating broad social and economic injustices and inequities.
We join many others in the cry against racism in every form.
As an organization and as individuals, we are committed to engaging our Metro North communities and partners in discussions around equity, inclusion, and support. And we will continue to take decisive action to advance social and economic opportunities for those who have suffered our society’s failings.
We stand firm in our values of equity, justice, and opportunity.
