SIETAR USA TAKES A STAND ON RACISM

Recognizing that this could be a very long list, we would like to bring into the room, the name of George Floyd. In the strongest possible terms, SIETAR USA:

  • Believes Black Lives Matter
  • Condemns police violence
  • Supports peaceful protest
  • Values authentic and honest dialog
Racial injustice is embedded into U.S. culture and there is no single solution that will take care of everything that needs to be changed and improved. We need to begin by eliminating racism in our own SIETAR USA house. We need to listen to each other—in a learning mode—and be willing to explore ways we can make effective changes. READ MORE
