All Black Lives Matter


The House of Garcon stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

We are part of a society where the lives of Black, Trans women, Indigenous, and other People of Color continue to be blighted by structural racism, lack of opportunity, health disparities, and direct violence by agents of the state and others.  

The House of Garcon hereby reaffirms its longstanding commitment, and pledges more fully, to act in solidarity with those who are targets of this violence and inequity.

In reaffirming this commitment, the House of Garcon recognizes that the ongoing history of oppression  and white supremacy that occurs not just in police departments, but in every fabric of our society. That we are part of a society where the lives of Black, Trans women, Indigenous, and other People of Color continue to be blighted by structural racism, lack of opportunity, health disparities, and direct violence by agents of the state and others.  

We therefore pledge the following that Black Lives – and Black Minds – Matter.

The differential valuing of life, of achievement, of opportunity, and of intellectual and cultural contributions based on which racialized group one is thought to be a member of is manifestly unjust. It compels us to repeat, internalize, and act upon the affirmation that All Black lives matter.  All Black lives do matter, and our collective practices, discourses, policies, and laws must reflect this.  All Black lives matter for the same reason that everyone’s  life matters; yet we are compelled to affirm that All Black lives matter precisely because institutions, practices, laws, and behaviors have so long denied it.
