We condemn the senseless killing of black people by police and the systemic racism that is built into the foundation of our country. We acknowledge our responsibility as part of the larger community to speak out against this violence. We will provide spaces to listen, discuss, and learn as an ultimate community. We stand in solidarity with the people protesting the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, David McAtee, Mike Ramos, Tony McDade, and many others demanding accountability for police brutality.
We cannot work towards building an equitable community in the sport of ultimate if we are not standing with our black neighbors. But we understand that solidarity alone cannot create meaningful change. We recognize the lack of diversity in our sport and in the makeup of our team, and want to give space to amplify black voices. We have committed to learning and actively engaging to be anti-racist for the betterment of ourselves, our community, and society.
