We at Erica Tanov stand against systemic racism and police brutality, and we stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others at the hands of police and the righteous uprisings that these deaths are catalyzing have inspired us into action and reflection. We are committed to re-examining our core principles, our role in the system, and the ways in which we can use our privilege to support the cause. Here are some resources we're tapping into to educate ourselves and contribute to the movement. As always, we welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
