Statement of Unity after George Floyd’s Murder

K.N.A.C. (Kalamazoo Nonprofit Advocacy Coalition) is united in sadness over the murder of George Floyd, the latest in a never-ending parade of senseless and racist killings of our Black brothers and sisters. 
K.N.A.C.’s mission is to alleviate poverty, eliminate discrimination, and celebrate the arts. These aspirations are for all the citizens of Kalamazoo. We practice radical hospitality in welcoming all people into our home, the First Baptist Church building. We embrace the values of peace, non-violence, and diversity and will continue to advocate these values for all who walk through our doors.
We deplore the use of force and degradation that has plagued America’s Black citizens for centuries and we encourage our tenants, patrons, and supporters to join us in making our country equal for all its people.¬†
