ABSW – GLA & ABSW FOUNDATION, INC. Supports Black Lives Matter

Over the past weeks, months, and years members of the Black community have been murdered by people who were sworn to protect and serve them. The deaths of these innocent, unarmed individuals are an outrage, and indicative of the systematic racism that is woven into the fabric of our society.

ABSW and ABSW Foundation condemn this murderous behavior as well as other types of racial oppression, discrimination and prejudice aimed at our people and all people of color who have been disenfranchised in America. We vow to call out such behavior where it exists, and to encourage and work with other groups who promote equality and justice for all.
