The assault in black communities through lethal racism must end now. Each person has a responsibility to speak out against it, and most importantly, to act on it. We here at INSZoom stand in solidarity with George Floyd’s family, the many victims of racist brutality, and those using their voices and platforms to challenge it.
This grief is not new; it is simply being filmed. These violent acts of hatred are the result of long-standing and systemic racism. There is no quick solution to the complex problems we as citizens in the world face; however, INSZoom is working against these challenges and affect change. This duty belongs to all of us.
Let us send love and strength to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others.
Our vision as Zoomers is to provide borderless opportunities across the world, and we are committed to using our platform to address these critical and painful issues of race, justice, and issues globally. We will continue to use our voices to encourage meaningful dialogue, identify solutions, and galvanize communities towards the change needed.
Many organizations are on the front line to fight for justice. To take immediate action, citizens can contribute to their efforts to secure the safety and freedom of Black Lives.

INSZoom is equally committed to making our voices heard in the voting booth. Voting is not only a tool for freedom but remains an essential one. Our futures are on the ballot.
Going forward, let us reflect on the past, act in the present, and hope for the future because lives do depend on it.
