June 4, 2020 – Day of Reflection and Witness for Seeking Equity and Justice for All

WHEREAS, all acts of subtle and overt oppression, racism, and injustice anywhere undermine the promise of equity and justice in the Town of Milton; and

WHEREAS, the targeting of people of color and the oppression, racism, injustice, and violence that they suffer is abhorrent to our shared humanity; and

WHEREAS, recent examples of systemic violence against people of color – the killings of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Breonna Taylor in Louisville, and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia – have once again shocked the conscience of law-abiding and peace-loving people everywhere; and

WHEREAS, the pain of oppression, racism, injustice, and violence is felt in the Town of Milton; and

WHEREAS, all people of good will must stand together against oppression, racism, injustice, and violence; and

WHEREAS, all people of good will must seek ways to eradicate the stain of oppression, racism, injustice, and violence against people of color from our Town and our country; and

WHEREAS, Black Lives Matter and we Stand in Solidarity against Racism.

NOW, THEREFORE, we, the Select Board and on behalf of the Town of Milton, hereby proclaim and recognize June 4, 2020, as a Day of Reflection and Witness for Seeking Equity and Justice for All, and we urge all residents to reflect on how they can actively help to eradicate oppression, racism, injustice, and violence against people of color from our Town and our country.
