5 Ways to Stand up for Civil Rights and Save Lives

Enough is Enough

To our SITE SoCal Community and Beyond,

It is important that we take a moment to address the tragedy our country is facing and the deep wounds inflicted on our Black community.

We see your pain, and we stand with you against injustice and racism. We stand with you as we create a better world. We stand with you for justice for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and far too many others.

We’ve seen corporations and organizations around the world step up to the plate these last few days like never before. And we, as a chapter of travel professionals with a global platform, must speak up.

We won’t be silent. We will do better. We will lead by example. We will be part of the solution.

Below is a list of ways that you can get involved in what's going on. From donations to peaceful protests, or simply signing a petition, we urge you to take part in this crucial part of history as we come together to turn the tide.
