Women’s White Collar Defense Association Statement
Joining Together to Condemn and Fight Racism

This country has witnessed tragedy after tragedy caused by systemic bias, racism, racial injustice and an alarming decay in the rule of law.  Recently, we have seen the brutal killings of George Floyd, after buying cigarettes in Minneapolis; Ahmaud Arbery, jogging in Glynn County, Georgia; Breonna Taylor, an EMT sleeping in her home in Louisville, Kentucky and others.  Their deaths have rightly led to global peaceful protests and highlighted the systemic racism in the United States.  These events are a call to all of us to take a stand for equality, justice, freedom and the rule of law for all, and to insist that every person be treated equally, fairly and with dignity and humanity. 

WWCDA is committed to equality and inclusion; as an organization, we are outraged by the racism and intolerance that is prevalent in our nation and our criminal justice system. WWCDA asks our community, supporters and other friends to boldly take a stand.  Take action by, among other things, learning more about the issues, working to correct injustices, defending those who are wronged, and leading inclusively.  We invite you to join us in standing against racism and injustice in any form and in making changes to bolster justice for Black America.
