AllHealth Network’s statement to the community regarding Black Lives Matter
Dear AllHealth Network Friends,
AllHealth Network remains steadfast in our commitment to a more diverse and inclusive community with justice and equality as core principles. Black lives matter to AllHealth Network. We acknowledge the pain, anger, and suffering within the Black community and the long, overdue time for change.
The tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others throughout the country challenges us to understand, show empathy, and commit ourselves to the many necessary changes ahead. Our Executive Team will be leading several listening sessions with employees and community partners over the next few weeks. The purpose of these conversations is to establish concrete action steps that AllHealth will implement in order to do our part to help change systemic racism and to address individual racism within our organization. We will identify sources of bias, discrimination and injustice within the organization and promote anti-racist policies and practices.
Social media, news stories and videos have been traumatic to watch and may lead to increased levels of anxiety, depression and overall stress. We encourage you to share your feelings with others and to listen with a compassionate ear. We have provided a link to resources we hope you will find helpful in your own personal journey. Establishing a dialogue with others around you and with your community is the first step toward change.
Every day, as we see our clients overcome challenges in their own lives, we see the strength and resiliency of the human spirit and this gives us hope. Archbishop Desmond Tutu, known for his work as an anti-apartheid and human rights activist, once said, “Hope is being able to see that there is a light despite all of the darkness.”
This is the time for us to unite and come together to help create justice and equality for people of color, as well as a diverse and inclusive society our communities deserve and we are destined to become. To you, our AllHealth Network friends and our community, we see you, we hear you, and we are working to be better for you.
