A statement in support of community action
Amplify My Community stands in solidarity with the peaceful protestors across the country, and with every American—especially members of the African American community—who feel pain and anger following the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and many more innocent black women, men, and children.
We share these feelings and understand that, for many, they are born out of years, decades, and centuries of systemic racism and injustice.
We take our name and mission from the belief that local organizations can amplify awareness of the challenges our communities face, work to help find solutions, and elevate the leaders who bring us together in difficult times.
We were founded just a few miles from the childhood home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and believe wholeheartedly that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
We pray for justice for George Floyd, seek peace and progress in our communities, and will actively pursue our mission of supporting and empowering the most vulnerable among us.
Black Lives Matter.
