New York Cares is outraged by the racism and brutality prevalent in our communities. As an organization that seeks to harness the best our city has to offer, caring New Yorkers, we are committed to speaking out against discrimination.
We grieve for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and all who have unjustly lost their lives due to persistent structural racism. We ache for their families. We mourn for our community and the countless Black individuals who have had their race weaponized against them like Christian Cooper recently experienced in Central Park. We stand in solidarity with those marching for the safety and rights of Black Americans.
