A statement shared with CSI staff last week.
CSI is deeply committed to engaging in actions, policies and practices that are respectful, fair and promote the personal development of all people regardless of race, sex, disability, religion, or gender identity, The world is at a crossroads with the Black Lives Matters movement bringing to the spotlight the many discriminatory, cruel and incomprehensible actions and practices tied to sheer discrimination. CSI deeply respects and supports the Black Lives Matters movement.
CSI supports the peaceful protests that are demanding change in our society. CSI supports all actions and movements that grows and encourages people, eliminates repression and discrimination and stops retaliation, violence and hatred. We understand that many in our CSI Family are deeply, emotionally charged with the recent events and tragic deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, David McAtee, Our thoughts and condolences go out to these families and to any others who have faced the effects of racist practices. At CSI, we stand ready to support our staff who are struggling at this time. Please, speak up if you need help. Your HR people can point you to services if you need them, your manager and program director can help you to develop constructive and safe ways to help effect change.
Be safe, Be kind, Be respectful!
With my sincerest thoughts and thanks,
