Since its inception, the Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) of Washington has fought for equal rights among underserved and underrepresented communities. Unfortunately, we find that the fight for equality and justice is far from over. We believe Black Lives Matter, and we will continue to call for an end to police brutality, white supremacy, and accountability for the police officers and civilians that murdered George Floyd, Ahmaud Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, Tony McDade, and the other Black Americans who have faced violence while living in a country founded on white supremacy. This is not a political debate. It is a matter of who we, as a country, believe has the right to live freely and safely within our borders. If you or anyone you know is facing racial discrimination, please contact OIC of Washington, we will do our best to connect you to the support you need to overcome this challenge!

Desde sus inicios, Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) de Washington ha luchado por la igualdad de derechos entre las comunidades desatendidas y subrepresentadas. Desafortunadamente, encontramos que la lucha por la igualdad y la justicia está lejos de terminar. Creemos que Black Lives Matter, y continuaremos pidiendo el fin de la brutalidad policial, la supremacía blanca y la rendición de cuentas por los oficiales de policía y civiles que asesinaron a George Floyd, Ahmaud Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, Tony McDade y los otros negros americanos que han enfrentado violencia mientras viven en un país fundado en la supremacía blanca. Esto no es un debate político. Se trata de que nosotros, como país, creamos que tiene derecho a vivir libre y seguramente dentro de nuestras fronteras. Si usted o alguien que conoce se enfrenta a la discriminación racial, por favor póngase en contacto con OIC de Washington, haremos todo lo posible para conectarlo con el apoyo que necesita para superar este desafío!
