Boston Hernia Statement on Black Lives Matter

We have spent recent weeks listening, learning, reflecting, and talking about our role as small medical practice during the Black Lives Matter movement. We are horrified by the senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. We proudly stand with the Black community, and will continue to support the movement for equity and justice.

We recognize our white privilege, and we have come to realize that it is our duty to consistently and actively use this privilege to work towards equity in America. We understand this is just the beginning. We will continue to do the uncomfortable work of learning more about our role in systemic racism and will make changes to be actively anti-racist. We will also be donating our time and resources to various organizations working to promote justice and dismantle systemic racism. Black Lives Matter.
