STATEMENT FROM SACOG BOARD CHAIR AND VICE-CHAIR
FORMATION OF BOARD WORKING GROUP ON RACE, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

At our board meeting on June 18, we called for the formation of a SACOG board working group on race, equity and inclusion.  We did so because, like so many of you, we were anguished and angered by the senseless and violent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many other members of the Black community across the country over many, many decades. Their deaths have laid bare the entrenched injustices that still mar our nation – injustices that we, as local and regional leaders, are committed to fighting.
