JCDecaux stands in solidarity with protesters across the country demanding accountability, justice and equity for the victims of systemic racism. We have witnessed the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Sandra Bland, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Breonna Taylor, and now, George Floyd. And there are countless others who also deserve acknowledgment and justice.
We recognize that racism, injustice and brutality impact us all and as a business we are committed to actively creating an inclusive and diverse culture where everyone feels a sense of belonging and is respected as an individual. We have long been committed to having an open and diverse workplace, and to being a platform for equal opportunity and equal experience. We are speaking up now and joining the voices of so many because silence is acceptance, silence is consent. And, we must all engage to change, and we are committed to doing that. We have work to do, and we pledge to do it.
Change begins with dialogue. Today we commit to listen, to deepen our understanding, and to shape our community’s future based on what we learn through these conversations. We commit to increasing JCDecaux engagement on these issues in a safe and open way.
