Today and every day, we are inviting everyone to #StandUnited against racism, violence and inequities.
Please read a statement from our President Mark Stewart, regarding recent events:
United Way of Bartholomew County stands with George Floyd, his family and everyone impacted by the recent acts of racism and violence. We all have a role to play in creating a more equitable future.
We must come together to call out discrimination and demand its removal from our community; otherwise, we are endorsing the status quo and are complicit in the abuses that follow.
We are asking you to stand United to make our community the place it needs to be – equitable, respectful and opportunity-filled. We as a community, can and must do better to guarantee that the basic human rights, freedoms, and opportunities of every person in our community are protected.
