Statement in Support of Black Lives Matter
As a nation, we find ourselves divided again by racism, fighting for human rights, all while in the midst of a global pandemic. The senseless murders of far too many African American men and women – most recently of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery – weigh heavy on our hearts. We share the hurt, fear, anger and frustration so many are experiencing.
The Warehouse Arts District Association is committed to a future where black people and people of color in this nation and everywhere live freely, comfortably and securely.
We stand against racism, by any means.
We are committed to providing a safe space, promoting equality and justice and serving our entire community.
We support the fundamental rights of black lives and insist that Black Lives Matter.
It is our duty to call out, denounce and to stand against acts of racial injustice and hate.
We have always been and remain committed to working with the black community to improve the Warehouse Arts District, to create an environment of safety, which uplifts every member of the community, promotes creativity and serves the needs of the entire community.
We are proud of the residents of our city who are peacefully protesting to demand racial justice. We are proud of every American and our supporters overseas who are standing up for what is right. We stand with you.
This T-Shirt is a tribute to the new mural in front of the Carter G. Woodson Museum on 9th Ave. South.
