As I stated in my 6.8.20 letter to Care Design NY members, families, the tragic death of George Floyd and other Black Americans were horrific reminders on the systemic racism in this country and the work we all need to do in ensuring that Black lives matter

The guilty verdict in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd is a step forward in the fight for racial justice and equity that Black Americans deserve. It indicates progress in bringing accountability and justice to a system fraught with inequity for Black, Brown, Indigenous, Asian, and all minority ethnic groups marginalized in the United States. 

However, there is still much to be done if we are to eradicate systemic racism and discrimination in this country. The Care Design NY Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Council is doing amazing work in building upon the CDNY foundation of values that cherish diversity and inclusion. We are using our voices to end the silence on racism when we see  it and effect positive change where we can. No person should face hate, bigotry, or acts of violence of any kind!

Care Design NY is committed to building an inclusive organization through courageous conversations, accountability and transparency in all aspects of our business. We are here to support you. We stand with you.
