We stand together with the black community, knowing that “justice for all” is a choice.⠀
We will act together because words alone cannot fix what is broken. We will:⠀
- Escalate our work to advance equity, diversity and inclusion throughout our organization.⠀
- Understand we do not have all the answers and will partner with experts in this area to advance our growth.⠀
- Diversify our staff and board to include more women, members of the black community, other people of color and people with lived experience of hunger.⠀
- Increase our investment in communities of color, who we know are disproportionately affected by poverty and hunger.⠀
- Listen to and amplify underrepresented voices and advocate for government policies that can make a positive impact on the lives of people facing hunger.⠀
- Expand our efforts to bring members of underrepresented communities together and provide a platform to co-create solutions.⠀
- Hold ourselves accountable, by posting actions taken.⠀
You should expect progress. ⠀
We stand together.
