Join us in fighting for justice and equity.

Dear SAVE community:

Black. Lives. Matter.

SAVE is outraged by the violent assaults on the Black community. We stand in solidarity with all communities mourning the murder of George Floyd and in support of their calls demanding justice. We applaud the decision to bring charges against all of the officers involved in George Floyd’s murder. We hope further justice will be done.

George Floyd matters. Ahmaud Aubry matters. Breonna Taylor matters.

Black survivors we serve matter.

Communities of color who are repeatedly victimized by law enforcement and other systems which perpetuate racism and injustice matter.

We recognize that the work we do to end intimate partner violence in our community will not be successful if we do not also work to end the oppression of Black people and other marginalized communities.

SAVE calls on our community of supporters and allies to join us in fighting for justice and equity by:

  • Support organizations that are committed to racial equity.
  • Call out and call in racism where we see it.
  • Commit to being anti-racist. It’s a privilege to educate yourself on systemic racism, instead of experiencing it.
  • Share messages, information and resources on your social media platform.
  • Vote. Choose leaders who will dismantle racist policies and reform institutions that have historically dehumanized Black people and communities. 

In the coming days and weeks, SAVE will continue to share what we are reading, thinking and doing in our work toward equity for Black people and all the communities in which we live and work. Please continue to visit our website and follow us on social media to join us in this work.

In solidarity and with hope,

The SAVE Family
