As an organization built on inclusivity that works to provide fair access to housing, health and financial resources for ALL, reStart is openly condemning the injustice and hatred that contributed to George Floyd’s death as well as the death and unjust treatment of countless other Black men and women.
This tragedy has brought to light the deeply rooted levels of racism and systematic prejudice that still live in our justice system. We also recognize that such inequity is disproportionately experienced by Black men and women in our community and our nation.
reStart is focused on providing a safe place for our staff and the community members we serve to grieve after such a tragedy. We will also be working closely with our board of directors and team to see how we can move from conversation to action for positive, systemic change for the people we serve.
