FWCC Somerset statement on racial justice
FWCC of Somerset County stands with the African American community in denouncing and seeking justice for the recent murders of George Floyd and others by the police. We are saddened and angry that these killings continue to plague our nation. Now is the time to work to stop the cycle of violence and inaction.
We recognize that creating real and lasting change requires far more than simply making statements. It requires that we understand, acknowledge and address historic, institutional racism against African Americans in particular, and other communities of color such as immigrants. Through our work supporting and maintaining fair and welcoming communities in Somerset County, FWCC Somerset, in partnership with other like-minded groups, is committed to finding solutions and making change a reality.
