The team at Avon Insurance Brokers hopes that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.
2020 has been a very hard year for all of us.
As we all continue to fight the pandemic there is another fight going on: the fight against racial injustice.
At Avon Insurance Brokers we stand in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism, white supremacy, and the historic oppression of the Black Community.
We are inspired by the people in our community who are using their voices and making change. We see you and we are with you.
For those looking for ways to take action, you can find resources for engagement and education below.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King
