Dear NEDRA Community,
We in NEDRA leadership are horrified and heartbroken by the senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others before (and since) them. We join those that oppose hatred and inequality in all its forms. Likewise, we believe we have a moral and civic responsibility to work toward addressing it to the best of our ability.
NEDRA continues its commitment to diversity and inclusion by committing to offer resources and programs related to our Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) mission of making sure that all members feel safe, empowered, respected, and valued in our growing prospect development community.
We also commit to providing more D&I related programming in the upcoming year and beyond.
For those interested in non-NEDRA programming related to D&I here are a couple of upcoming webinars that you may find of interest:
For those that want to get more involved directly here is a link to organizations that are doing the work on the ground: https://www.benjerry.com/whats-new/2019/02/racial-justice-organizations.
NEDRA stands in solidarity with all who are speaking out against racial injustice. Let us pledge to make a difference, and not, consciously or unconsciously, contribute to “dreams deferred.”
