We are appalled and deeply saddened by the killing of George Floyd.
It is a human tragedy, and we grieve along with so many Americans.
It is also not an isolated incident. It is a manifestation of the structural racism and injustice that exist in our country and that affect so many members of our communities through violence, through disparities in economic opportunity, and through reduced access to education and healthcare.
We believe deeply in the American experiment, as incomplete and imperfect as it remains today. Now is the time for us to resolve to take sustained action together. At Atlas Venture, we are committed to work for civil rights and equality of justice and to partner with organizations like @LS_Cares and others seeking positive change throughout our country.
