The Lexington Human Services Department stands together against racism and injustice in any form. We understand and are committed to the basic rights of our fellow citizens, and will stand united for justice for all. We will continue to encourage every citizen to treat one another with respect and civility regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. We will continue to support and advocate for to those who have experienced hate and discrimination, and encourage others to do the same. We take this pledge fully aware that the struggle to eliminate racism will require an ongoing transformation within our community, as well as within the institutions and structures of our society. It is our responsibility to educate ourselves and others about the privileges afforded to some, and not all, have profound impacts on the world in which we all live. While no words can heal an unjust world or solve the pain that has been caused, we all must listen with an open heart and speak out whenever necessary. Racism has no place in our world and the time for change is now.
