Racial justice statement

We at the Amberley Collaborative are committed to cultivating caring communities for all.

Racial injustice is harming our communities in the United States. Black communities have especially been affected by racial and economic injustice—and particularly by violence at the hands of law enforcement personnel.

This must change.

We support our Black siblings who have long worked for liberation and justice. We grieve with you, and we commit to listening to you, learning from you, and following your lead.

We call on our siblings who are not Black to step up your attention to racial injustice. It is time to listen, to learn, to grieve, and to follow the lead of our Black siblings in their work for liberation and justice.

Over the coming weeks, the Amberley Collaborative will be adding resources to our website to help you learn about our Black neighbors’ experiences and how you can work against racial injustice and for justice and peace.

If you would like our assistance to engage in difficult conversations, please let us know. We can tap our neighbors’ expertise to help you move forward.

Together may we learn justice. Together may we know peace.

—the Amberley Collaborative board of directors
