A Message to the SoACE Community

As our nation suffers through the civil unrest we’ve witnessed as a result of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery these last few weeks, we, as a Board of Directors on behalf of the Association, reaffirm our commitment to diversity and our opposition to racism, prejudice, hatred, exclusion, and bigotry. Every one of us has the power to find opportunities to acknowledge and value all human life.

The troubling acts of violence we’ve witnessed lately are indications that our country continues to suffer from racial injustice. At the most recent SoACE conference in Memphis, we were reminded during our visit to the National Civil Rights Museum that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. ...Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly” (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from the Birmingham Jail). Knowing our country’s history of systemic racism is the best way to equip us with changing things today and in the future.

Whether we have been hurt directly or indirectly, let us acknowledge our pain and work toward healing and real change in a way that is meaningful in our communities, our homes, our workplaces, and in our Association.
