As social protests spread in our communities after the death of George Floyd, a black man who died under police arrest in Minneapolis, it’s important for the staff of Adult and Child Health to assert our belief that Black Lives Matter. The need for equality permeates the very mission and services we provide to persons who face all kinds of discrimination and we stand shoulder to shoulder with those protesting injustice, hatred, and racism.
To lend not only our voices but provide direct support to the black community, Adult and Child Health is proud to donate to the MLK Center of Indianapolis, a multifaceted nonprofit organization providing resources and services to inner city Indy youth, while emphasizing civil rights teachings and philosophies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A&C joins with community organizations, community members, partners and local officials who share our beliefs about the basic rights and dignities all persons should have.
A&C’s vision of building “caring communities where every child, adult, and family have the opportunity to live healthy, happy lives” cannot be more applicable than in this critical social movement. We are dedicated to making this vision a reality.
