At RestorePro NY & NJ we are an equal opportunity employer. For the past fifteen years we have actively built a workplace culture of inclusion. Our business model is inextricably linked to creating a lasting impact in our society. We believe in times of crisis the wise build bridges, but the foolish build barriers. Many will seek to jump on board as if this time in our nation is simply a new fad to be a part of, but for us at RestorePro, this has been a way of life, something generational, and we embrace racial reconciliation as a basic tenet of life itself. We will not stand for prejudice at RestorePro, and every day we commit to work harder to support an inclusive environment where each of our colleagues can be their authentic self.
Greg and Carey Makkay are proud to announce their new partner in RestorePro NYC, Rex Duval. For the past 45 years Rex has been an advocate for people of color and has dedicated his entire life to racial reconciliation and racial equality, focusing on the primary area of racial imbalance which is exemplified in our criminal justice system. At RestorePro NYC we are opening doors for select men and women of color returning to society from prison, as well as those who have been struggling for equity, change and deliverance, stemming from the crushing environments that exist in our public housing projects.
This stepping-stone will address the overwhelming recidivism in our black communities, poor paying jobs, while offering many fine people worthy of a second chance, a re-introduction filled with dignity and hope for their future. Furthermore, we are also promoting our program, “Extra Plate", which provides meals in each client name, after every disinfection treatment in our NY market, to feed the homeless and suffering in NYC. Unfortunately, the majority of this community are also people of color.
We close with a quote from the Honorable Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. from his letter at a Birmingham jail, in April of 1963. “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial ‘outside agitator’ idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.”
