Statement from The One Club for Creativity on Black Lives Matter
The One Club
Jun 03, 2020
The brutal and inequitable treatment of black people is not new, and must stop.
The recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and so many others throughout history that were not filmed are why we say emphatically...Black Lives Matter, and stand in solidarity with all those who protest against police violence, racism, and discrimination.
We also realize that standing in this moment is not enough; we need action. The One Club for Creativity Board and Staff have taken action by financially supporting the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. We will also continue to help support, build, and grow the black creative community.
This is the moment, an opportunity for real change against an injustice that has survived for way too long.
