The gravity of the events over the past weeks resulting from the unjustified killing of George Floyd weighs heavily on our collective hearts and minds. We hold in the highest regard the civil rights that should and must be afforded to everyone. As business leaders, and as individuals, we bear a responsibility to speak out and act against injustice. We stand in solidarity with those who are protesting throughout the world to ensure the realization of the inalienable rights held by all global citizens without regard to the color of their skin. We are proud of those in the FormanWatkins family who have individually spoken out for change. To our African-American and diverse colleagues, clients and community, FormanWatkins reaffirms its commitment to the core values of diversity and inclusion. We acknowledge that a public statement, such as this one, is only one of many acts necessary to live up to those values. We promise to continue to listen, speak and act in support of those values.
