Housing Partnership Equity Trust is in the business of building community. Today our community is hurting as we grieve the repeated loss of life, the loss of dignity, and the loss of our people’s potential, as the result of racial inequality, hatred, and division. As we go forward, we can and we must turn our rightful grief and our rage into winning, once and for all, the fight for racial equality.
As Americans, one of the most powerful weapons we have to use in this fight is our right, recognized in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, to peaceably assemble and to petition our government for a redress of grievances. The First Amendment acknowledges our power as citizens and helps define who we are as people. We honor and support those who are engaging in peaceful protest and call on our government leaders to protect those exercising this Constitutional right.
