Like many of you, I am deeply saddened by the pain and suffering experienced by African Americans and other minority groups in our community caused by racism.
Over the last week, we have witnessed people of all races, genders and ages take to the streets in Santa Clara County and across the nation to protest the killing of George Floyd. Their calls to end racial injustice, discrimination and inequality are not going unheard.
At Valley Water, we remain steadfast in our support of the African American community. Our organization stands firm in our value statement that all individuals are unique and important, and will be treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
These are not just words. Valley Water has taken action and remains committed to creating an inclusive work environment and diversity in our ranks, which allows us to better serve the people of Santa Clara County. Our organization stands in support of our African American community, and all people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or religious belief.
