Black Lives Matter

We are grieving the tragic murder of George Floyd in Minnesota. 

Mr.Floyd is one of many Black Americans who have been senselessly killed. Ahmaud Arbery. Eric Garner. Tamir Rice. Breonna Taylor. These are just a few of the names and precious lives lost. 

For the privileged, the killings are shocking events. For the Black community, last week’s tragedy was yet another example of long-standing, systemic racism and injustice they encounter on a regular basis.

500 stands steadfast with our Black colleagues, founders, families and community.
