To our friends, clients, and colleagues:
Right now there is unrest and anguish in all of our communities over systemic racism that can no longer be tolerated or ignored. The time has come for everyone to acknowledge that millions of Americans are treated differently merely because of the color of their skin. In a country as great as ours this is simply unacceptable.
We are saddened and sickened by the senseless killing of George Floyd and the numerous other unarmed African Americans in other cities in recent times, and our deepest sympathies go out to their families and friends.
At Ulmer, we are committed to creating a firm free of bigotry and unequal treatment and we understand that diversity helps build rich and meaningful work and personal environments. To our colleagues in the black community, please know you matter to us. We hope that we can work together to resolve age-old problems of racism and bias, and hope for peaceful and positive outcomes and resolutions, in each of our communities.
