We are deeply saddened and frustrated by the senseless murder of George Floyd and those who have lost their lives to police brutality and systemic racism. The PRSA-SF Chapter stands in solidarity with our black colleagues and friends during this painful time. Diversity and inclusion has long been a key tenet of our chapter and will continue to be long after this current cycle of media attention fades. As communicators, and humans, we have an ethical responsibility to use our voice and stand for truth and justice. We embrace the responsibility and are committed to amplify our voices and continue to support the black community.
