Taking time to recognize the people of color who have shaped our nation is important, company says.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 04, 2013
Obituary.us.org asks everyone to recognize and respect Black History Month, company officials said.
“For far too long, the experiences and contributions of African Americans in our history have been ignored,” company spokesman Josh Fraser said. “We can't let that continue. We are meant to be the Unites States, not a country divided by our race or the color of our skin.”
The company, which provides obituary record checks for a small fee, said it has always had a commitment to diversity, both in its own corporate culture and when dealing with customers and potential customers.
“We need to realize that we are all just people,” Fraser said. “We all bleed red. We all have the same hopes and dreams. We all want to be good citizens. We all want to protect our families and friends. That is why we have always made sure that our staff is as racially diverse as our country.”
Fraser said the company is currently researching charities that serve the African-American community in order to find ways that they can contribute.
“We are actively seeking out worthwhile non-profit organizations who can help level the playing field,” Fraser said. “When we identify worthwhile charitable organizations, we will make a large contribution in honor of Black History Month.”
