Statement From Atlee Hall
Written By Atlee Hall
We stand in support of Black Americans in our community and around the country and denounce all forms of racism, including at the hands of those who serve to protect us.
We commit to listen, to learn and to assist in amplifying calls for justice and equality, and to work to eradicate the systemic racism that has aggrieved so many for too long.
Words are simply not enough. While we reflect on ways we can better effectuate change, we are donating to the following organizations to further the fight for racial justice and equality-
- The NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund
- Crispus Attucks Community Center
- Dr. Rita Smith-Wade-El Legacy Fund, through the Lancaster County Community Foundation
