FLOW Stands in Solidarity with the Black Community Against Police Brutality and Racial Inequity  

The Filipino Lawyers of Washington (“FLOW”) recognize and strongly condemn the historical and current pain inflicted on our Black families, friends, and colleagues by police brutality, and unauthorized and unwarranted use of deadly force on George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others.  As people of color, we know that any progress made towards racial equity would not have been possible without the sacrifices and activism of the Black community.  

As Filipinos, we are proud of our long history in Washington State of standing side by side with the Black community in the fight for civil and human rights.  In step with that history, FLOW and its membership stand in solidarity with the Black community. In doing so, we advocate educating ourselves on the effects of systemic use of unauthorized and unwarranted use of deadly force and other instances of police brutality, its effects on the black community, and other minority communities, and challenging our fellow community members to find meaningful ways to hold space for our Black sisters and brothers in bringing light to the human and civil indignities that continue to be perpetuated. 

FLOW is committed to advocating and working for the lasting systemic and societal changes that are necessary to end the suffering that the Black community has endured for too long.
