BHN's Commitment to the Practice of Anti-Racism

"Anti-racism is not an identity or a checklist; it’s a practice."
- Andrea Ranae

BHN affirms our commitment to the practice of anti-racism. We feel the despair in our communities as a result of the senseless killing of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and many, many others. The targeting of black men, in particular, and people of color in general, and the protests and violence of the past week, are indications that we as a nation have a LONG way to go until equity and justice are achieved.

We reaffirm our commitment to justice and equity. We value diversity and stand in solidarity with our neighbors and colleagues of all races, ethnicities, sexual identity and gender orientations; that we may together create a fair and just world. Visit our Social Justice page for more information.

"Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism where you find it, including in yourself. And it’s the only way forward."
