As a long-standing agency serving the city of Omaha and surrounding areas, Heartland Family Service is committed to ensuring equity, advocacy, and dismantling systems that reinforce oppression.
We stand in solidarity with our community that is hurting as a result of yet another tragic and senseless murder of an unarmed black person. George Floyd. James Scurlock. We say their names. We recognize the gravity of the events that are happening in our country and in our city, as well as how the weight of that impacts the health and well-being of communities of color. Racism and discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated. We refuse to turn a blind eye and allow members of our community to suffer in silence.
We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
