In response to the incessant plague of racism and social injustice in our country, SER National shouts to the world that Black Lives Matter. George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor matter. To our African American employees, clients, friends, neighbors and allies – SER is listening. We are watching. We have seen the injustices you have had to bear for far too long.

SER condemns all forms of racism with more than our words. We commit to do our part in fixing what is broken and speaking for those that have been silenced. SER’s vision is “to enable the Hispanic community and other underserved populations, to fully participate in the socio-economic mainstream, achieving equal access and parity in all aspects of American society.” We strive for equality, fight on behalf of the minority populations in this country, and empower them to be their best selves. And yet, racial injustice remains.

We know there is still much for us to learn. SER commits to serving and meeting the needs of the underserved, and we pledge to listen and learn from populations that are treated with anything less than dignity. We will use our combined pain, sorrow, fear and righteous rage for true action that supports and honors the undeniable value of the Black community.

Our nation’s pledge boldly makes the claim that we are one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. It’s time we held ourselves and our leaders to this standard.

At SER, we raise our voice to join yours as one unified community. We will not be silent and will not rest until this country can not only say but live out the truth that Black Lives Matter.
