The Pandemic of Racism – Message from Mark Ricketts, President & CEO

Recent News | June 10, 2020

All of us in the National Church Residences family are feeling the shock, pain, and frustration as our nation reels from the tragic death of George Floyd. There continues to be too many senseless killings of black men and women, and other ugly signs of bigotry and systemic racism.

We need to acknowledge that racism touches the lives of those that we love and those we serve. Whether that’s our coworkers or the seniors in our communities. Racism is a pandemic that must be stopped.

Just as we are fighting hard to stop the spread of COVID-19, National Church Residences is committed to fighting the pandemic of racism.

We are a family of employees and seniors of many faiths and many colors. We aspire to do what families do best. Families listen to each other with love and respect. Families have tough conversations. Families do not let others suffer alone.

In the weeks ahead we will bring together a diverse workgroup of staff, from throughout our organization, to help our National Church Residences family rise to this challenge. We are taking steps to stop the spread, and we encourage all of our employees and those in our community to share their voice, ideas, and feedback to help us make change happen and make sure we are doing the things that will have the greatest impact.

We declare our commitment to helping end racism in our nation, and we also declare our commitment to our core values throughout our organization.

What happened to George Floyd and countless others before him, is inexcusable. Justice must be served, but we must have God’s spirit to make things better. Please join us on this journey to fight the virus of racism.
