As our ACC National CEO put out her message to members indicating that the organization plans to work with members and partners to establish opportunities for the in-house community to identify actions each of us can take to help make a difference, we will do the same within our Wisconsin community.
It is our shared belief that racism, division and hatred have no place within our communities. Understandably we cannot help but be frustrated, and disappointed as we continue to observe the cycle of racism and violence and subsequent displays of social unrest marring peaceful protests that have left us collectively reeling, but also proud watching people all over the nation exercise their right to peaceful protest, which underpins our democracy. We are further encouraged by the actions and remarks of leaders in our corporate and legal communities. Should you find yourself in need of anything please know that you can reach out to us at any time.
