If you're like me, you are watching the news in shock and sadness, but also a sense of hope as so many stand together against systemic racism.
Our nation is struggling with generations of injustice, racism and inequity. Being silent is no longer an option. On behalf of all of us at New Hampshire PBS, I want the Black members of our community to know this:
We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
My NHPBS colleagues and I pledge to you that we will do better to work with you and your communities. We will work to shed light on your struggles and celebrate your victories. We are here to support you, to work with you, listen deeply and amplify the voices of the Black community.
Our mission at New Hampshire PBS is to be a reflection of everyone in the Granite State and to bring our neighbors together in a safe environment to share stories that raise awareness and deepen our understanding about the challenges facing our state and our country.
NHPBS will continue to improve as your trusted public media partner. We will pursue diversity, equity and inclusion in our programming and in our workforce.
In the weeks and months ahead, we'll continue to bring you more programs and services that deepen our understanding and bridge our differences as we begin to heal as a community. Together, we will stand against racism.
