Statement from Montgomery County Commission for Women on Recent Racial Events

The Montgomery County Commission for Women shares the pain, anguish and outrage of so many Americans at the tragic murder of George Floyd and countless other African Americans before him at the hands of the police – people like Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Montgomery County’s own Robert White. We are also saddened by the disproportionate toll the pandemic has exacted on communities of color. Taken together, these events remind us that institutionalized racism and systemic inequality continue to affect every aspect of American life.

Since its founding, the Commission for Women has fought for women’s equality in Montgomery County and throughout the State of Maryland. Our work has led to policies and programs to eliminate gender and racial disparities in employment, health care and the criminal justice system. Our 2018 Status of Women in Montgomery County Report presented quantitative data in key areas identifying specific obstacles, gaps, and disparities that continue to create challenges for women in the County. Even when the present moment passes, we will continue to work for a society where people of all genders, races, backgrounds and incomes can thrive and for solutions that create a better, more just, Montgomery County.

The Montgomery County Commission for Women stands with those fighting against systemic racism and discrimination in any form…And we always will.
