Blue Cross Blue Shield Association Statement Regarding Racial Injustice

CHICAGO – June 9, 2020 - Today, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association’s president and CEO, Scott P. Serota issued the following statement:
 
At this moment of deep reflection, the thoughts of the team across the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association continue to be with the family and friends of Mr. George Floyd, and our entire nation, as we mourn his senseless death.
 
African Americans have suffered racial injustice for far too long. To stay silent as so many suffer is simply not an option, and we will not tolerate racism in our communities nor our workplaces. We stand with those advocating for solutions to address racism in all its forms. We stand with every one demanding equality and equity.
 
We will raise our voices to condemn racism, discrimination, and social injustice. We commit to being an effective part of the solution to end inequities and racial injustice in its many forms. We will do better.
