This horror, when combined with the frustrations related to loss of livelihood, freedom and power, has struck a chord in our country we feel can not be ignored. We all must seize this moment, and we will certainly do our part, including participating in peaceful protests and demonstrating our solidarity with the pursuit of racial justice.
We are committed to sustaining, supporting and growing a community in which each of us can live without fear of violence or discrimination and have the same economic opportunities that all of humanity deserves. Our mission is economic and community vitality for all, and we will work toward making Mill Valley a welcoming place for people of color to live, work and visit.
To paraphrase Edmund Burke, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing. We hear that call and want to be a force for change. Indeed, one of our major roles and strategic goals as an organization is to convene our broader 94941 community around important issues. We commit to do this to address racial justice and economic opportunity in Mill Valley. This statement is a first step and we’re committed to doing the hard work in front of us.
