PAC's Statement Condemning Racism and Discrimination

Jody Braden

Over the past week we have experienced fear, pain, and anger, and have been watching calls for justice in the wake of actions that have severely impacted black communities across the nation and here in Portland.

PAC’s staff and board want to reaffirm our commitment to listening to, educating, and empowering our young athletes in and out of the pool. We believe in diversity, inclusion, and freedom regardless of race, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, background and interests, and condemn racism and discrimination.

It is our responsibility of leadership to spark change, listen, educate, and challenge our youth and PAC family to create the future they want to live in.

We stand together to support all who have been impacted in ways hard to even imagine, and we hear you, see you, and stand with you. We will make a difference.

We are One Team and One Family.
