Reno Food Systems is adding our voice to the public outcry against the enduring scourge of police brutality and racism in the United States. Like so many other Americans, we are outraged and heartbroken by the murder of George Floyd, one more in a long list of black people killed by our country’s indifference to racism and inability to promote justice for all. As a mission driven organization we are dedicated to serving our community, and our community is crying out for justice and change now.
We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We condemn police brutality inflicted on citizens across this country and in our own communities. We condemn racism against black people in our streets, in our institutions, and in our government. The time is now to demand action. We support the work of organizations and ordinary people that will uplift and uphold the dignity and human rights of black people, of all people.
During the month of June, we will have a moratorium on requesting or accepting donations to our organization and ask that if you are able, please provide financial support to organizations that are dedicated to eradicating racism in our country and ending police brutality. Reno Food Systems will donate 50% of our sales revenue from the month of June to PLANevada Bail Support and Black Earth Farms serving the California East Bay Area.
We believe that dismantling structural disempowerment, racism, and institutional violence is in direct alignment with our mission to cultivate community-based food systems. We envision a future where everyone has access to healthy food and realize this will only be accomplished when we all can live without fear of the police and with equal expectation of personal well-being and dignity. We commit to continue to uphold and support organizations and people working to eradicate these structures, systems, and institutions so long as these injustices ensue. We commit to amplify the voices and needs of the people most directly impacted in our communities. We encourage our community to make these commitments with us. Black Lives Matter.
