Project Morry Statement on Anti-Racism
For the last 15 years, Project Morry has actively worked on becoming an anti-racist organization. However, as long as our students and families must endure systemic and individual acts of oppression and violence, our work is not done. We’ve spent the last 2 weeks listening to our students, families, alumni, and community. We share the following as a statement of our commitment to the work that we must do as a community and as an organization.
To Our Project Morry Community,
After almost two weeks and endless years of witnessing, experiencing, feeling and the processing of so many emotions, we want you all to feel our presence in whatever you are going through. Black Lives will Always Matter. George Floyd, Lyanna Dior, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Botham Jean, the list is too long.
Systemic racism perpetuates the injustices and inequalities present in our country.
Systemic racism perpetuates the injustices and inequalities our communities experience every day.
Project Morry will continue creating spaces and opportunities to strengthen, inspire, and plant the seeds necessary to combat these injustices and inequalities.
We will continue the social justice conversations with all our students, cultivating the skills necessary for these future leaders to enact the change and challenge the injustices wherever they may be.
We will keep our commitment to equity for black and brown lives.
We will continue to explore various means of activism and will support our communities in their work towards making these necessary changes.
We stand with our communities in the fight for humanity and against injustice.
