A MESSAGE OF SOLIDARITY – Greenberg Traurig’s Social, Racial, and Economic Justice Action Plan
In the face of injustice, Greenberg Traurig’s Social, Racial, and Economic Justice Action Plan commits to upholding the rule of law and equality for all.
More deeply than ever before, we join the voices against racism. We are listening. We see you. We are with you. As lawyers we have a responsibility to drive change, fight injustice, and advocate for justice. Never has it been more critical than now for us to recognize that role and opportunity and to act on it. We do a great deal. But it’s not enough. The murder of George Floyd — and those who came before and since him unfortunately — are stark reminders that we need to do more and stand up and ensure justice and respect for all. This is our time to listen. To have those uncomfortable conversations. To have the courage to act and to do our part. It is way past time.
More than ever, all of us need to come together.
TAKING ACTION; DRIVING FORWARD
