Our students and teachers, our school communities, and our staff are hurting from the tragic losses of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, just as we honor the memory of countless victims of racist violence before them. For far too long, systematic oppression has targeted and disproportionately harmed African-Americans in this country, and it remains a shameful aspect of American life. We assert in no uncertain terms that USATestprep is committed to ensuring racial equity and fighting racial discrimination.
We all have an obligation to fight racism and the divisive rhetoric, leadership, and policies that enable racism to persist. The recent events across America underscore the necessity of addressing these issues head-on, with tangible, lasting solutions.
We fully support Black Lives Matter. We are donating to a social justice organization working to elevate equality in the national conversation. In addition, we are giving our staff the flexibility to participate in social justice efforts on company time. Finally, we are committed to diversity as a core value, and we will continue working within our company family to improve awareness, dialogue, and mutual understanding so that our small organization can help lead the way. We were all working to overcome the COVID crisis; now, we must overcome COVID even as we fully commit to fighting racism.
Our company’s business is serving children and teachers. But racial discrimination and inequality threaten our entire democracy and all our communities. We hope you will act now and join us in building a better future for all our children, and for all of us.
