Statement on Equality and Social Justice

The Children’s Trust is committed to equality and social justice across Miami-Dade County. We stand with all those who fight for a just society and against racism.

We mourn and protest the death of George Floyd and all those before him whose lives were taken because of the color of their skin. The Children’s Trust is a voice for our community through our providers, partners and those we serve as we seek transformative change.

In the face of racial injustice and systemic racism, The Children’s Trust joins those who demand change. We are experiencing a moment in history where silence is not an option and we must choose the right side of justice – condemning racism in all forms, serving as conveners in important conversations across our communities, and breaking down institutional racism in the areas where we have influence.
