Dutchess Outreach exists and was created to help lift people out of poverty by providing food access and emergency relief programs and services. We are also charged to act as an advocate for our clients. The nature of the work that we do demands that we take a stand against racism and oppression and that we speak out when injustice occurs.
George Floyd was murdered in the broad daylight. This is not normal.
We will not tolerate hate. We will not stay silent as our Black community members continue to be murdered. We will rise in solidarity, together. We will continue to work toward the unraveling of the conditions that have led to our collective unrest, and toward justice for all.
