To our clients and friends in The Latimer Group community.
We are thoroughly disgusted by the treatment and tragic killing of George Floyd on May 25 in Minneapolis. This reminds us, yet again, of how far our country has yet to go in our journey towards fairness, opportunity and safety for all. The legitimate protests that have since followed remind us, once again, that there are large communities of people in the United States, in particular the black community, that are enraged, scared and must be heard.
Our organization has always stood strongly and unequivocally against all forms of discrimination, racism, and hatred. But today, we feel that “standing against” something is not enough. We believe that real change will require more than simply being “against” something. Real change will require real conversation, real listening and real action.
Since our founding nearly twenty years ago, we have always believed that great communication skills can change the world. Today, we believe that great communication will be required to begin making the progress that has never been optional, but long ignored. We need more listening, more awareness, and more honest discussion.
Our team is committed to looking actively for tangible ways that we can be a part of the progress – through our work, our volunteerism, our donations, and our action.
Please join us. Silence is not an option.
