Standing Together for Equality
                              The recent heartbreaking events in the U.S. with the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks,
                              and countless others bring to light the inequality, implicit bias, prejudice, and systemic racism so many contend with on a daily
                              basis.  These senseless murders have demonstrated the urgent need for meaningful social change and police reform to address
                              disparate treatment endured by Black people at the hands of law enforcement.
                              Peña & Kahn condemns discriminatory and unjust treatment of human beings on the basis of race.  We have a long history of
                              advocating for victims of police misconduct and continue to fight for civil rights provided by our laws.  We reaffirm our core
                              mission to fight for the rights of everyday people. 
                              To this end, inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, we believe one of the best ways to combat racial inequality and bring
                              meaningful social change is to make our voices heard by voting.  We encourage you to ensure you are registered to vote to exercise
                              your right:  https://www.ny.gov/services/register-vote
                              Peña & Kahn thanks you for your support and for being our ally in the fight for equality and justice.
