It has been a devastating week in the United States. Following the murder of George Floyd and a number of other horrific examples of racial injustice, protests and uprisings have swept the nation, and other countries around the world. CMX is a global community, that strives to create a safe, welcoming space for all. We will not be silent. We stand with the black community and anyone who is fighting to end racial injustice and police brutality.
The CMX community is made up of people who are building and managing communities. Collectively we reach, and have built trust with, hundreds of millions of people. We believe that CMX is one of the most powerful communities in the world.
We want to make sure you feel like you have the resources you need in order to be an advocate, and to mobilize your communities. We also want to make sure CMX is a space where you feel heard, especially for our black members.
Join us on Thursday, June 4th to share your experiences, support the black members of the CMX community, and discuss actions we can take with our communities to drive change. This event is an opportunity for the CMX Community to come together, to talk, to listen, to connect, and to act.
This is a safe space for you to freely express your thoughts. You are welcome to join and don't have to speak. You are welcome to leave early.
Take care of yourself and stay safe.
