STAMFORD, CONNECTICUT. (June 5, 2020 ) –This week in America, millions have taken to the streets to protest the murder of George Floyd and the systematic police brutality targeting the black community. We have been humbled and inspired to watch this movement spread across the globe. We applaud your support. This is too important for silence.
We have a lot to do, and so much to learn on how to be better people and build a better society. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
Here’s how we at Katon Direct are starting:
As individuals, we have donated, raised our voices, and signed petitions. We are working on confronting our own biases, and learning how to be true allies for justice.
As a company, we’re working on doing more by implementing real ways to put our company values of equality into a more regular practice and encouraging rhetoric and participation, because we know the work is never done. We are also donating to causes that will help bring about change. These are a few of the organizations we are supporting:
We want to continue enhancing awareness and to help as best we can. We encourage and hope you do the same.
Black Lives Matter. And Katon Direct stands in support.
