New York, NY (June 23, 2020) – Over the past weeks our country is once again grappling with a simple fact: Black people are systematically oppressed. The tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless other Black lives that have been lost to police brutality, hate crimes and social injustice are intolerable.
We stand against systemic racism because we believe Black lives matter.
We stand with people who have the right to feel safe, valued, and heard.
We stand with those asserting their right to protest and speak out against the unjust loss of Black lives.
It is our responsibility to add our voice to the growing chorus demanding change in the hopes that together, we can build a more just and equitable society for all Black Americans. In support of our employee-owners, our clients and our communities, our company reasserts our commitment to never tolerate racism and prejudice.
To fund action, Tenet is matching individual employee contributions to Black Lives Matter and related causes of their choice up to $250.
