FIGHT Releases Statement on Recent Tragedies

We at FIGHT, like you, are horrified and disturbed by the painful events and tragedies happening around our country. Our thoughts and prayers are with the many people deeply affected by the tragic incidents of this past week and the many incidents that have gone before. As Dr. King stated, let’s try our hardest to let love to drive out hate. Black lives do matter. Let us resolve to collectively seek out and ask for policy changes that make that statement a reality for everyone.

Recently two FIGHT staff members, Tiffany Hall and Akia Feggans, wrote an article for Newsworks. Their message is, don’t be afraid to seek appropriate care during these very troubling and confusing times. Have conversations, step away from media and social media if needed, and allow yourself the space to grieve. Check out their other tips via the link below.
