         A Statement and Pledge for Black Lives Matter              Dear Friends of JCYC,     The Japanese Community Youth Council (JCYC) is mourning. The horrifying murder of    George Floyd as well as countless other Black lives have opened up the flood gates of deep,    agonizing pain and grief. At JCYC, we have been doing a lot of soul searching and it has been    difficult to articulate the outrage and despair of this moment, but we understand that silence    is not an option.          George Floyd's death is a disgraceful outcome of this country's long history of criminalization,    dehumanization, and oppression of Black lives in this nation. JCYC will not be complicit while    institutional racism and white supremacy in America continues to enable the police brutality that    has ravaged the Black community for centuries.          As an organization which has a long and proud history of serving Black children and youth, we    have a responsibility to acknowledge that we must do better.  Many communities of color have    benefited from the Black freedom struggles that paved the way for civil rights for all Americans.    While JCYC has fought for decades to increase opportunities for Black children and youth, we must    and will commit ourselves to do more. While words are important, only through action can we step    into the front lines to demand justice and allyship for the Black community.          JCYC pledges solidarity for Black Lives by:                - standing united for Black lives not only when lives are lost but will integrate allyship into our                  core values and everyday recognition that their liberation is tied to that of all communities of                  color.                - continuously educating ourselves to "see" the Black community and build our collective        cognitive empathy and understanding.      - listening and doing everything in our power to make sure that Black children, youth, families,        partners, and those within our organization feel heard.      - fighting for Black lives, speaking out in unity, and committing ourselves to addressing the        anti-Blackness in our own community.     Our pledge will be followed by action, which will alter the culture of our organization and promote    sustained allyship. It is time for all Asians and other communities of color to say "enough", and we    urge others to heed the urgency of this moment to look within, become allies, and unequivocally    proclaim that Black Lives Matter.
