A Message of Solidarity
Posted Thursday, June 11, 2020
We, alongside you, are mourning the unnecessary loss of George Floyd and the many other lives before him. We recognize and feel the pain of racial injustice in our country. Through this message, it is our hope to stand in solidarity with the BLM community.
Brooke Grove Retirement Village, insulated by 220 acres of land and set behind the trees in Sandy Spring, often feels like an oasis away from the activity of the major cities in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, but there is evidence that our campus was once part of the Underground Railroad that helped to free the slaves. We employ approximately 500 multicultural, very diverse staff members whose lives are often touched by the injustice that is taking place in our society. We grieve with our team members during this painful time and acknowledge the need for immediate and permanent change and time for healing.
