The Massachusetts Workforce Association joins with others throughout the state, nation, and world in condemning the unjust actions that caused the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and too many others.
Now is not the time to remain silent. This week marks, what we hope, is a turning point in our country. More than ever we need to listen, look inward, amplify voices of color, and recommit ourselves to the values of diversity, inclusion, and opportunity for all.
As an association made up of organizations committed to creating opportunities for youth and adults through good jobs, we commit to joining others and taking tangible steps to best support public policy reforms to help rebuild systems and create a more inclusive and anti-racist society.
