Uplands PEAK is guided by the principle that all sentient beings have a natural and unalienable right to a life free from cruelty, abuse, or neglect. Therefore, we stand strongly with the Black Lives Matter movement. We are doing our work of stretching, listening, and having real discussions to ensure that our organization reflects these values. We understand that this is on-going and not a one-off. We’ll continue to share what we read, learn, and our goals with you. We must be a part of ending oppression for all.
This is one of the conversations that we learned from. Dr. Ibram X. Kendi is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and the Director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University. Take a listen.
