For George Floyd. And Ahmaud Arbery. And Breonna Taylor. And Tony McDade. And Nina Pop. And João Pedro Matos Pinto.
And all the names we’ll never know.
Black Lives Matter, and McKinney stands in solidarity with our Black colleagues and friends. While we’ve made progress across diversity, inclusion and equity at McKinney, we have a long way to go. The recent death of George Floyd is yet another reminder that no matter what else is consuming our time and attention – including a global pandemic – we need to prioritize these efforts. The burden of eradicating racism cannot be left to Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC); we are vowing to take this time to educate ourselves so we can better support our BIPOC coworkers, friends, and neighbors.
