The 3,500 members of Associated Industries of Massachusetts join with those who seek to create a just and equitable society for our Commonwealth and for our country. These tragic events, together with the impact of COVID-19 on people of color, manifest historic racial and ethnic disparities that must be addressed.

The world of tomorrow cannot look like the world of today.
AIM is committed to taking action.
The issues before us today define who we are as a people and as a business community. They are ingrained in our individual and collective identities as a nation. But with challenge comes opportunity. We must stop, reflect, educate, and change ourselves and the world around us.
AIM believes that business is a force for positive change and that our mission to strengthen the Massachusetts economy represents one step to ensuring a better life for everyone.
I urge the members of AIM and the business community to join us in committing to act now.
John Regan is President and CEO of Associated Industries of Massachusetts.
