I acknowledge the history of discriminatory practices and policies in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and the existence of historical white privilege that has denied opportunities to all.
I am committed to the healing and restoration that must occur to redress the legacy of injustice done to Black Charlotteans so that opportunity and wealth gaps can be closed and upward mobility can be accessible to all.
I am committed to acknowledging and rectifying the harm done by bias, prejudices, and white privilege.
I am committed to having an open heart and open mind, as I remain teachable on the journey to racial reconciliation.
I am committed to using my financial resources and influence to create an equitable and just Charlotte and to support the mission and work of Restorative Justice CLT.
Join me in this acknowledgment and commitment.
