As a team, we understand that silence makes you complicit. Therefore, we are using our platform to speak out about the racial injustices happening in America. We are saddened, angry and frustrated with the countless Black lives being murdered due to racism and police brutality. There needs to be a change and change begins with us.
Our program stands on the core values of Gratitude, Integrity, Servitude, Unity, and Humility. These values hold each of us accountable to always do what is right. As a team, we will be donating $400 to the fund/organization of our choice.
We will never stop being advocates for Black lives and the Black community. We will continue to demand justice and racial equality.
We will not ignore. We will not stand by. We will not be silent.
