Black Lives Matter: A Statement from The Lavin Agency
We at The Lavin Agency have prided ourselves on supporting and aligning with diverse perspectives on race, religion, gender, sexuality, climate activism, and social justice. And while we normally let our speakers—the experts—do the talking, we also felt we had a responsibility to speak up ourselves. Today, we stand in solidarity alongside the brilliant and talented individuals we’re proud to represent, who work tirelessly to dismantle the oppressive and racist systems we all live under, and the Black Lives Matter movement as a whole.
Like everyone around the world, we were horrified to learn of George Floyd’s senseless death, and the subsequent violence and brutality displayed towards protestors across North America. Our goal as a speaker’s bureau has always been to make the world a better, smarter place, and that is a perpetual work in progress. We will continue our commitment to amplifying underrepresented voices and perspectives, as well as offering a platform for this important work. Racial injustice is a deeply rooted systemic issue that requires all of our constant efforts and vigilance. This is just the beginning of a much larger conversation we will be having—one that we invite you to have with us, as well as your own communities.
