Black Lives Matter
June 4, 2020
Our communities face difficult challenges. People are hurting and angry. The long-term institutional inequities in our policing, employment, financial, and health systems have been revealed with startling clarity by events of recent weeks, exacerbated by a health crisis that has disproportionately affected people of color in our community.
While we at FID continue to care for the most vulnerable in our community, we recognize that our nation’s history of inequality affects many of our neighbors, not just those who are poor or homeless. We at FID seek to continue our work with community members and community partners to address these challenges to ensure opportunity for everyone and the housing, food and health stability to which everyone has a right. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” FID remains committed to working with our community toward justice for all.
