Statement of Cline Tours, Inc. regarding the events of April 15, 2015.
Cline Tours, Inc. has a long and documented history of ethnic diversity and the support of that belief. This decision to terminate the charter on April 15th, 2015 was made on what we felt was best for the continued safety of the group, our driver, our bus, and others who might come into contact with our bus while it was on this trip. The decision was based on the information relayed to us by our driver.
Our history speaks for itself. We are proud of who we are and what has been accomplished with our business. We are proud that African Americans represent half of our workforce and that almost half of our business comes from the African American community including churches, schools, and African American owned businesses. We have always received positive testimonials and reviews from all our customers and we continually strive to improve how we serve our customers.
We will continue to be inclusive at all levels and respect the rights of all.
