NYSCRA Racial Injustice Declaration

We the Board of the New York State Court Reporters Association wish to take this opportunity to express our position on the following important matters.  We recognize the serious injustice that exists, and has existed for far too long, against Black and Brown people in our country, and other communities of color.  We have seen it in the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery and, sadly, many others.  And we also recognize that these are not recent issues, that they have been part of the fabric of our country since its inception.  NYSCRA strongly condemns all actions of racial injustice, discrimination, and police brutality.
