Like so many members of our community, we continue to reflect on this turbulent and difficult time in Oregon and across the nation. The protests have sparked a conversation and call to action the likes we have not seen in my adult life. Racism needs to stop and those who do not live up to this basic moral standard should be held accountable, no matter their position in our communities.
We share in the pain, anger, and outrage that so many are feeling after the senseless and brutal killing of George Floyd and so many other Black Americans. We must all do more to end racism and discrimination.
Summit Bank firmly condemns racism or discrimination of any kind. We are also dedicated to learning more about what we can do to end racism of all kinds to build up our communities.
