During the last few weeks, our country has endured one of the most difficult times in its long and storied history. The sad and senseless deaths and lack of justice for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others have exposed the long overdue reform necessary to establish equal rights for the black community.
We support those who protest institutions in our society that perpetuate injustice. We have witnessed and felt the pain in our country. We support the voices that are courageously speaking up to create positive change in our communities. While at times those voices have been co-opted by others perpetrating violence and destruction, their truth rings louder than those attempting to suppress them.
Eighty-five years ago, our company was established by the second generation of an immigrant family. We have always believed in equal rights, inclusion and respect for all.
Meaningful change must come. Heaven Hill is committed to creating more diversity and inclusion in our company and to supporting change in our communities. We are having the difficult conversations and working to define what actions we can take to impact meaningful, long-term change.
