BERWYN, Pa., Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ATIXA stands in support of the essential truth that Black Lives Matter. As an association dedicated to fighting discrimination, ATIXA expresses its solidarity with colleague associations and brothers and sisters dedicated to this movement and the long-overdue and necessary national conversations surrounding issues of racism, bias, and hate.
ATIXA expresses its sympathy to those families whose lives have been blighted by racism and whose families have lost loved ones to race-motivated violence.
ATIXA condemns those who shoot unarmed, defenseless, and innocent people who are peacefully going about their daily lives.
Though saddened and disturbed at the continuing daily violence and hatred threaded throughout society, ATIXA sees an opportunity to do better, to unravel strands of hate, weave new coalitions, broaden tolerance, and promote justice.
Through its civil rights commitment, ATIXA recognizes the frequency of compound discrimination in this work, the perniciousness of systemic racism, and the intersectionality of various forms of hatred and oppression. Racism impacts all of us and therefore all of us are obligated to rededicate ourselves to equality.
ATIXA's members work tirelessly each day to help address systemic issues of violence, discrimination, harassment, and hatred. Their strength and dedication remind us that we all are, and can be, part of the solution. Society is facing difficult truths, but accepting those truths and calling to be better selves and for a more civil society is the only path to make our nation and our world a better place.
