BLACK LIVES MATTER

We at VIVA stand in solidarity with the black communities during this time. 

We each have a voice and a role to play. To start, we are providing our staff with the resources from #TheShowMustBePaused to reflect on and learn from during this time. (https://www.theshowmustbepaused.com/). We continue to explore ways of making sustainable and meaningful changes within our organization that better reflect our core values of inclusion and community. We must not stay silent. Now more than ever, every voice matters.
