For centuries Black lives have been, and continue to be, devalued, denied,
disrespected, threatened and extinguished with impunity in our country. As a
nation, we must dismantle systems of structural racism which marginalize and
oppress Black people. Now is the time to join in solidarity around our common
humanity.

Therefore, Women Confronting Racism:

• Unites with those seeking justice for the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud
Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many other known and unknown victims of
police violence.
• Commits to the long struggle to end unjust policies and systemic racism
everywhere.
• Stands with all those who name and denounce police brutality, white
supremacy, and language which divides, belittles and intimidates.
• Pledges to address the violence of white privilege and to create a world in
which all are treated with dignity and respect.
