At VeraCloud, we believe we all have the responsibility to respect and abide by the Constitution of the United States.
At VeraCloud, we believe that when founding principles of our country are at risk that we have the obligation and duty to speak up, join in with others, and do what we can to respectfully defend our Constitution and our great country.
With this in mind:
We join in with millions of other Americans today to raise our voices in protest against the recent Immigration Ban of this Administration.
We join in with millions of other Americans today to raise our voices to support those who are at risk as a result of the recent actions of this administration.
We join in with Apple, Citi, Goldman Sachs, Google, Microsoft, Nike, Starbucks, the Wikimedia Foundation, and millions of other companies, foundations, community-groups, individuals and others to encourage the leaders of the United States to find a better balance between protecting our country and ALL of its people, and our country’s longstanding global role as an open and welcoming society.
We join in with Jeff Bezos and are in strong agreement with him that: "We’re a nation of immigrants whose diverse backgrounds, ideas, and points of view have helped us build and invent as a nation for over 240 years. No nation is better at harnessing the energies and talents of immigrants. It’s a distinctive competitive advantage for our country—one we should not weaken."
Those who founded the United States of America drafted the Constitution and the checks and balances involved in the separation of the three branches of government with the intention to avoid autocratic rule. We join in with millions of other Americans today to raise our voices and in support of the US Constitution and the all three branches of our government, with special attention on the judicial branch which has stepped in at this moment of crisis in the Constitutional form of a check and balance.
“Ours is a system of three equal branches of government. Two branches, Congress and the President, are chosen by election, and the third branch, the court, is chosen by the other two. When you vote for a candidate for the Senate or the House, you're voting for the direction of the country and the world as much as when you vote for President.”
At VeraCloud, we’re driven to create a more just, inclusive use of public sector funds to unlock opportunities, and sustainable job creation for diverse businesses: ALL DIVERSE BUSINESSES and, by extension, ALL DIVERSE ENTREPRENEURS who build them and contribute to the growth and well-being of those businesses and, by extension, these United States of America.
We hope that Americans…all Americans…will see these tumultuous days as an urgent call to sustained action, advocacy, and IMPLEMENTATION to reaffirm the timeless truths of the democratic principles of this great nation. We hope that Americans will continue to raise their hands and increase their levels of participation in this democracy to ensure that these crises are weathered. We hope, and we at VeraCloud will continue to work so that together we unite to make this great country of ours stronger as a result of the access, opportunity, and inclusion afforded ALL peoples for this and future generations.
