“Black Lives Matter. The ATU stands in solidarity with the nonviolent demonstrations calling for real change in response to the recent murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and the countless others at the hands of police brutality and racism. We unequivocally oppose racism in all its forms and firmly support the first amendment right to stand up against the racial and economic injustices and inequities that impact communities of color. We must join together to push for reforms and dismantle the systemic cycle of racism and hatred that continues to plague our society.”

– ATU International President John A. Costa
