Paradigm stands with the black community and all those who promote justice, peace, and fairness for all.
Paradigm has, and always will, condemn the evils of racism, injustice, and violence. Violence, in particular, is very personal to us. We stand with the black community and all those who promote justice, peace, and fairness for all.
The first step to solving any problem is admitting that a problem exists. We must acknowledge that racism and violence are systemic issues in our society and commit to active participation in being part of the solution.
To this end, Paradigm will be donating to the Equal Justice Initiative and the Downtown Emergency Relief Fund. The Equal Justice Initiative “is committed to changing the narrative about race in America” through research, education, and working with policymakers to enact change. The Downtown Emergency Relief Fund was set up by the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County to assist downtown Madison businesses in recovering from the violence of this past weekend.
We can all strive to be better – better educated on these important issues, better advocates and allies, and better-prepared to take action.
