As our city and country faces these unbelievably emotional and difficult times with the senseless murder of George Floyd, we acknowledge the strength of coming together as a community. As a club, we need to unite, embrace diversity, and cultivate equity among everyone. MU stands against racism and inequality. We are proud of our diversity and know it is a key strength of our community and the game of soccer. From players, to coaches, and parents, we ask that you be agents of change and positive examples in our community - on and off the field. We ask that you speak out against racism and injustice. Do not remain silent. Although we still face a pandemic and are unable to spend time together as we normally would, do not forget to connect and support one another. Our members are impacted by recent events in a variety of ways. We want you to know that MU supports you and will continue to work toward eliminating racial disparities in youth soccer while progressing toward our vision of Soccer for the City. Together we have the power to make MU the safest and most welcoming community in Minneapolis.
Stay strong, stay vigilant, stay safe and if you need help or a sounding board, please reach out.
