We stand in solidarity with the Black community and the peaceful protestors who stand up for civil rights in the name of all those who have died inhumanly at the hands of senseless brutality.
Our continued and unrelenting violent mistreatment of our fellow Americans because of the color of their skin—to deny their most basic civil liberties and human dignity—to make our fellow Americans unsafe and unwelcome in their own country—is a national disgrace.
To be a true American patriot and a lawyer today is to stand up for those that are unrelentingly victimized, oppressed, and murdered, and ensure that their voices are heard and they are protected now.
To stand silently on the sidelines at this moment in our history, is to be complicit.
We the people, indeed.
