09 Jun Statement on Social Justice
People’s Legal Services unequivocally denounces the murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and too many others. We stand with protestors, locally and across the nation, in expressing their respective trauma. We mourn with those families who suffer as the result of discriminatory policing and mass incarceration of people of color.
Our organization is founded on the principle that we deserve, and should expect, access to justice and equal standing in the eyes of the law. We are committed to representing those who are systematically marginalized and excluded. We call on the exercise of empathy, inherently present in us all, as means of progress in the struggle for equality.
