 Statement on Racial Injustice

Racism and systemic injustice cannot be tolerated.

We, like all Americans, watched in horror the event that resulted in George Floyd’s death. Like so many, we are heartbroken, angry and hurt. The Chamber and YPN South Bend stand with our community in understanding the social injustice and systemic racism that impacts so many lives…our fellow neighbors, friends, colleagues and loved ones.

What can we do about it? How can we really help? What we do know is that we don’t have all the answers. But we want to be part of the process in finding them. First by listening and working with our other community partners in implementing meaningful solutions.

As a young professionals program in the South Bend Region, we are eager to listen and learn. Join our organization, no matter what race and ethnicity you are, our organization can learn from you. We are all professionals, and we all deserve to be heard. Help us tear down the systemic injustices that have gone on for far too long in the professional world. Help us make our organization become a visual representation of the people who live in our region. We recognize that we can do a better job of reaching out to diverse and underserved groups in our community to ensure that all populations are represented. -YPN South Bend
