Fred Hutch stands with the victims and families of police brutality and systemic racism inherent in the United States. We believe that Black Lives Matter.

Over the past few months, we have spent time listening, sharing and understanding the social realities that are shaping our work, our workplace climate and our broader community. While our efforts to address these realities are ongoing, based on what we heard, we are taking action now to promote change at our organization and in the community — and end racial injustice. 

Learn more about the actions we're taking to end racial injstice and promote change at our organization and in our community.
