BLACK LIVES MATTER.

SALISBURY PRIDE IS BUILT ON AND WORKS FOR “EQUALITY FOR ALL.”

 

WE RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS SYSTEMIC RACISM IN OUR SOCIETY AND ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT PASSIVE SILENCE AND INACTION INFERS COMPLICITY, WHICH IS UNACCEPTABLE.

 

WE MUST BE VOCAL AND ACT FOR JUSTICE FOR BLACK PEOPLE. 

WE CHALLENGE OUR COMMUNITY TO STAND UP AND LOUDLY SAY “BLACK LIVES MATTER.” 

 

WE COMMIT TO WORKING IN OUR COMMMUNITY WITH ALL WHO SEEK TO GIVE A VOICE TO THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT AND WORK IN PARTNERSHIP TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE.

 

SHIRLEY CHISHOLM, THE FIRST BLACK WOMAN ELECTED TO THE U.S. CONGRESS, SAID, “SERVICE IS THE RENT YOU PAY FOR ROOM ON THIS EARTH.”

 

OUR RENT IS PAST DUE! WE NEED TO ACT NOW. SALISBURY NEEDS ALL OF US TO SERVE AS AGENTS OF CHANGE.

 

AS PART OF OUR SUPPORT OF THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT, WE ENCOURAGE PEACEFUL PROTESTS AND WILL SEEK OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMMUNITY DIALOGUE WHILE WE ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE.

 

WE WELCOME YOUR IDEAS AND YOUR INPUT. 

PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS AND JOIN WITH US AS WE SUPPORT BLACK LIVES MATTER HERE IN SALISBURY AND BEYOND.
