The Colorado Plaintiff Employment Lawyers Association condemns the racist system that continues to devalue the lives of Black Americans. Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd are sadly only the latest victims. Their murders, like the murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955, has again brought nationwide and worldwide attention to the racial violence and injustice still so prevalent in America. We mourn the losses of these individuals’ lives and stand in solidarity with those seeking to hold the murderers accountable. BLACK LIVES MATTER!
As employment lawyers we fight to remain vigilant in the face of a judicial system that too often ignores the realities of the world we live in and the racial divide that still exists in our society today. We fight to prevent the watering down of laws that were meant to ensure justice and equal rights to all. We do not become complacent or desensitized to the world around us. We cry when our clients are denied the right to have their voices heard by a jury of their peers. We mourn every judicial decision that silently strips away the equal rights that were so hard fought by so many who have died. But we continue to fight the good fight. We call on you to get involved however possible to support an America that equally values all of its citizens. Whether that is attending a protest, writing a letter, running for office or discussing these issues with your friends, we encourage you to stay strong in the fight for social justice and against racial oppression.PELA Board of Directors and Officers
