S & J Consulting, LLC supports the YWCA's Stand Against Racism."Regarding Thursday's meeting of the Rock County Board of Supervisors, with additional context here: bit.ly/Rock_County_Board_Protest𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗔𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻, 𝗜𝗻𝗰. 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗱𝘀 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗬𝗪𝗖𝗔 𝗥𝗼𝗰𝗸 𝗖𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁𝘆."It continues to be incredibly unfortunate that in a state that has the worst racial disparity outcomes in the entire nation and in a community that has a long and checkered history of racial discrimination, that some in our community try to mask their biases and their bigotry with coded language and incredibly uninformed claims of Critical Race Theory. We appreciate those serving on the Rock County Board that stood against racism at the April 13, 2023, Board of Supervisors meeting; The fact that it was even necessary, is deplorable. The message that the actions of some sends to BIPOC individuals in this community is that we are still not fully welcomed or accepted. As a proud partner of YWCA Rock County, Community Action, Inc. stands in lock step with the ongoing battle to combat systemic racism, educate people regarding individual bias and bigotry, and the difficult work of eliminating racial and cultural disparities. On behalf of the Board, staff, and volunteers of Community Action, our heartfelt thanks to the YWCA for their strong and unwavering “Stand Against Racism”. It is our hope that others who feel the same way will decide to start using their voices. It is time for the so-called “silent majority” to start speaking up and speaking out. It is time for people to take a stand." Marcellus Perry Executive Director Community Action Inc. of Rock and Walworth Counties. ... See MoreSee Less
