Black Lives Matter
🖤🖤🖤 Black Lives Matter
"We stand against racism and intolerance. We stand for inclusion and we value differences."
We at Loyola Dining are deeply disturbed by the recent events and all the occurrences of racial injustice happening in our society. We recognize there are a lot of raw emotions and reflection happening - not only for ourselves, but also our guests, our team members, and our entire community. We believe in having an environment where everyone is heard, valued, and cared for. We believe in always treating others with respect, and doing the right thing.
We join our Loyola community in solidarity and allyship. As we plan for the upcoming year and every year after, we pledge to continuously improve at putting our words into action in ways that we can continue this important conversation and commitment to inclusion. Stay tuned for more details soon as we continue our conversations and plans as a team.
Together we can do better.
