Like most Americans, we can barely keep up with today’s news cycle. By the time we finish reading one story, there’s another one breaking. We’re left scratching our heads, wondering what to do next.
It’s not the breakneck speed at which we’re consuming news these days that has us concerned, it’s the type of news we’re hearing about that led us to speak up today. Just this month alone, we’ve seen the worst anti-Semitic hate crime in US history that left eleven Jewish Americans dead. We saw members of the media and elected officials being terrorized with bombs. We saw two Black people murdered in a grocery store by someone who was full of hate, had access to a gun, and happened to be locked out of the Black church he tried to enter first. We saw the most powerful man in the country – who holds the most powerful position in the world – use his platform and his voice to divide our country with fear, hate, and violence.
Enough is enough.
At The Fairmount Group, we want you to know that our commitment to social justice, equality, and healthy communities will never waiver. We’re mourning for the Jewish community this week. We’re here for our trans and gender non-conforming friends, family members, and neighbors who found themselves being used as pawns in a political battle they didn’t ask for. We love and value immigrants and their children, regardless of their documentation status. We believe and trust women. We support workers. We believe in equality and justice for the LGBTQ community. We want to protect our environment. We’re proud to partner with clients doing this work, and we applaud everyone working to make the world a better place.
