As the fight for equality and the end of police brutality continues throughout our country, we are filled with grief and anger at the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many others. We mourn the precious lives taken by the racism that leads to such heinous acts.
As our Executive Director, Darryl Smith, has said in a public statement, “HomeSight has always stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the black and brown communities that we are privileged to serve.”
Our equity statement says in part that “HomeSight is committed to fostering racial equity in our work and communities to create prosperity that is truly shared by all.”
In this unprecedented time, never have these sentiments meant more. Let’s not let this latest chapter in a very long story conclude with the same ending we’ve experienced over, and over again. There are countless ways to make a difference and it is up to each and every one of us to choose the way in which we do so.
That is why we have decided to share some valuable resources that you can use to make a change in the community. The following links include lists of petitions, donation funds, maps of protests, as well as ways you can educate yourself on black history and be the change yourself.
