Black Lives Matter

The Southwest District of CKI is proud to be made up of a diverse group of passionate and caring individuals who are dedicated to the realization of humanity’s potential. We aim to achieve this through the work we do within our communities and our efforts to develop better leaders within ourselves and the youth of tomorrow. As a society we cannot recognize humanity’s full potential without equality.

As an organization, and as allies of the Black Lives Matter movement, we stand for inclusivity— not the alienation of people regardless of race, age, gender, orientation, etc. In following our objects, we encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships; we advocate for the development of a more intelligent, active, and serviceable citizenship. We support cooperation in fostering an informed public with moral and ethical opinions and high idealism, which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill.

We must now more than ever work together to improve all human relationships and realize humanity’s full potential.

We hope everyone will take the time to intentionally reflect on their values and work on educating oneself where they may fall short and realizing the disparity within their own community and nation. It is important that we lead by example what an intelligent, active, and serviceable citizenship looks like. We encourage everyone to inform themselves and others on the current issues that are impacting black communities today. To help you can donate money, time or resources; sign petitions; actively serve your home communities; and represent the values that we believe are important as an organization.

Each individual should take the time to do what they believe is ethical and kind, and please remember to stay safe.
