Our communities are overwhelmed with grief. We are heartsick over the inhumanity we have witnessed in the recent deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery. We are appalled by the callous response from the authorities who shrugged in the face of evil. Cities across the nation have erupted in rage and despair. As civil rights leaders who are committed to racial justice, we share the protesters’ anguish, and the heartbreak of the communities where uprisings have turned violent.
This week, the virtual Legislative Policy Conference will bring together young professionals, lawmakers and Congressional leaders, corporate executives, influencers and motivational speakers, and more voices for collective dialogue and concrete next steps. The Legislative Policy Conference is a part of HAUL's Community and Advocacy outreach efforts through Operation Safe Houston II. We will have staff monitoring key issue s and driving an ongoing community discussion after the Conference ends.
