We Hear You, We See You - A Statement from Rebuilding Together Philadelphia
Rebuilding Together Philadelphia is heartbroken by the recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. We recognize the many other Black and Brown people who have been killed, hurt, falsely accused, profiled, incarcerated, and treated unfairly because of racism, especially in our criminal justice system.
RTP stands in opposition to the pervasive, systemic racism that informs the policies that shape our lives. Yet we take hope from the many thousands across the country taking action against racism and white supremacy -- and we demand safety for those protestors. RTP has reached out to all our community partners to say: we hear you, we support you, and how can we help rebuild?
Racist actions and attitudes are constant threats to People of Color – including the homeowners we serve, as well as our team members, Board members and community partners. We are already working to make RTP not just a diverse and inclusive organization, but an anti-racist one. Rebuilding Together Philadelphia looks forward to doing this, the way we always do, together.
