To our HELP USA Community,
During this time of tremendous difficulty and unrest, I want to reach out to you all with a simple message.
The murder of George Floyd was an unspeakable horror – one that is deeply rooted in, and a reflection of, the systemic racism that pervades our society.
HELP USA, and all of the members of our leadership team, stand squarely with those who are engaged in the fight against racism, violence, and injustice: in New York City, and across the country.
This organization was founded more than thirty years ago to combat economic and housing injustice. This fight cannot be separated from the fight against racism. Many of the people HELP USA works with every day come to us because they have been caught up in a system that has stacked the deck against them – not because of who they are, but because of the color of their skin. Our team has devoted their lives and careers to helping these people, and this moment is no different.
Thank you for being a part of this important work – and know that we all stand together against the forces that seek to tear us apart.
President and CEO, HELP USA
