Our statement on the killing of George Floyd and the importance of confronting racism

George Floyd should be alive today. So should Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Samuel Dubose and countless other Black mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters.


Their breath was stolen from them by a society that does not value that which is priceless: Black lives. We share in the collective outrage and grief at the tragic killings we have witnessed in recent weeks. We also recognize that this outrage and grief comes from a longstanding history of systemic racism, violence, and misuse of power.


At Cohear, we stand with our Black colleagues, Bridgebuilders, partners and the entire Black community during these difficult days, and in the months and years ahead. We are committed to elevating the voices of those who might not otherwise have a seat at the table and doing the hard work of educating ourselves.


We believe that together we can build a more just society. Collectively we must say “enough is enough,” and build a country in which Black people can finally breathe free.
