Our Statement on Racial Injustice
In 1963, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at First Methodist Church in Evanston, and he asked those in attendance to judge for themselves if they were being "good neighbors."
In response to the death of George Floyd, EDC's position is clear. We value and respect black lives. We believe in an Evanston where protection and care for our fellow residents and neighbors leads to a more just society, one unblemished by bigotry or bias. In our cooperative's work, we must remember the lasting effects of past racist housing policies on black livelihoods in Evanston, and we must continue to name and address racism in the present day.
