PCH Response to Kneel for Justice Rally, 6-10-2020

Last week, many gathered on Nassau Street to mourn the murder of Black citizens including George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many others. Princeton Community Housing joins our neighbors, and the millions of others in our country, who are expressing their disgust and grief. We too are mourning the continued failure of this country to triumph over its history of racism and police brutality.

Police brutality is not the only instance of disparate treatment of individuals based on race. Throughout this country, Black families have been prevented from living in the communities of their choice because of racist exclusionary zoning and discriminatory lending practices. These injustices, forms of systemic racism, must also continue to be addressed. At Princeton Community Housing, our mission, since 1967, has been to provide welcoming, well-maintained, affordable homes for all in an inclusive community with great schools and a multitude of resources. All persons have always been and will continue to be welcome, regardless of race, national origin, age, sexuality, sexual identity, or creed.

Together, let's ensure that this moment becomes the turning point. Going forward, we must work constructively, collaboratively, and relentlessly until the racist, disparate treatment of our fellow citizens is eliminated. Princeton Community Housing recommits to working with all of you to continue to create the reality of a truly welcoming, just, and inclusive community for all.
