The National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) condemns the murder of George Floyd and the many other Black Americans who have lost their lives in similar circumstances.  We stand in solidarity with others across our great land who are giving voice to our collective need to address – finally and thoroughly – the institutional biases and racism that plagues our country.  We stand with the black community and all communities of color in demanding a universal resolve to live up to the values of our nation that all people are created equal, with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
