We hope that everyone has been staying safe and healthy during these troubling times. Klingenstein Fields Advisors (KF Advisors) has been watching, with pain and sadness, the tragic events of the past few months. The senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have once again brought to the forefront the sharp inequality and racism that exists in our country today. These deaths are ones in a long line of individuals whose lives were unjustly cut short. At KF Advisors, we cannot be a mere spectator to current events. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “The time is always right to do what’s right.” It is not enough to be periodically outraged, then revert to a state of passivity. We must continually and actively work in a non-violent manner for equality for all.
We can all do better, and we must do better. At KF Advisors, we vow to do our part by supporting each other and taking an active stand on the side of freedom and equality. We are committed to inclusiveness in our workplace, our society, and elsewhere, striving for a safer world where everyone can walk down the street without fear of danger just for being who they are. We encourage our clients, colleagues, friends, and families to do the same. Make your voices heard, share your message, and help to be part of the change needed. There are numerous organizations that help to peacefully support change and progress. Within your community there are likely local causes you can support, and there are many national organizations that you can support such as Equal Justice Initiative
, Color of Change
, and others, as many of our partners and employees do.
Together, let’s make this a world where everyone feels safe and accepted, without discrimination or prejudice. We wish peace to all as we work to improve and learn from this challenging period.
