City Year San José/Silicon Valley’s Response to Institutionalized Racism
City Year San José/Silicon Valley, along with the entire City Year network, unequivocally condemns the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was killed by police. This horrific violence, along with the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed and so many others, are repeated and troubling reminders of the deep systemic racism that remains in our country and threatens the lives of black Americans every day.
City Year San José/Silicon Valley is committed to combating racist systems of inequity. Opposing racism is essential and central to our mission to create educational equity and to prepare the next generation of civically engaged leaders working across lines of difference. We look forward to learning, and taking productive action, with all of you.
