Statement on the George Floyd Tragedy
I hope you are all doing okay and staying safe/healthy! With everything going on right now whether it is COVID-19 or the injustices we’ve all been seeing, I just wanted to take a moment to address the current circumstances. It's really disheartening to see everything that is happening and the lives being hurt, and I want to give a reminder to everyone that we are here for you.
Circle K International at CSULB will always be a community members can confide in. I ask that we all do our part in respecting one another and providing support for those around you. We do not stand for injustice.
We want to link some resources that can help, support, and educate yourself on what is going on at the moment. If you have any other resources that can help out, feel free to comment them down below!
We will be having an Open Forum this Thursday, June 4th at 9PM via Zoom to give an opportunity to create discussion, education, vent, and give a voice to those having a difficult time right now. Hopefully these types of discussions can help everyone foster understanding and help us come together as a community. We do not stand for injustice.
I’m still trying to learn and educate myself, so feel free to message me your input as well on how we can all help. We can all work towards this together. We have each other to confide in during these times. Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns, suggestions, etc.!
Take care of yourselves and stay informed."
