The recent tragic deaths of and acts of violence against African-American and Asian-American citizens are an unwelcome reminder that our society continues to exhibit the stains of injustice, inequality, and racism. Last summer's protests in our cities, across the nation, and around the world, and the continuing outcry for justice, remind us that we must confront the wrongs of the past and resist prejudice today in order to secure to ourselves and our communities a better, more just future. Miller & Martin stands against hate, injustice, and violence, and we support peaceful efforts seeking change.
We reaffirm our commitment to the fundamental principles of justice, equality, and the rule of law. We recognize that, as participants in the legal system, we have an obligation to help effectuate these principles, including by supporting causes promoting racial equity.
As an organization, we know that diversity is a strength and are committed to an inclusive workplace. We are dedicated to listening to and learning from members of our firm family and our communities and to being part of the solution to the problems we all face.
