As a company and as individual citizens, the people of Swisher recognize thoughts and prayers alone will not heal the pain of racial inequity and systemic injustice in our country. It is time to go beyond words and actively accelerate true and lasting change. To ensure the voices of our Black communities are lifted up, widely shared, and always heard.
But first, we must listen. Ask rather than assume. Amplify understanding and build true respect. Open our minds and hearts to identify how, why, and where our system is broken.
Only then can we begin becoming whole as a nation.
Those steps forward start now. We are committed to being stronger advocates and staying accountable for our progress. On behalf of the entire Swisher family, you have my promise.
