As of midweek, more than 60 Providers’ Council members have so far signed on to a call to action on racial justice statement created by the Council’s Race, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
The committee, co-chaired by Sandra McCroom and Andy Pond, is asking human services providers to: listen; educate themselves, their staff and communities on systemic inequity and racial oppression; develop an organizational strategy for combating systemic racism and oppression; institute a diversity, equity and inclusion committee to discuss issues, press for change and advance the efforts on racial equity; support the efforts of staff, clients, consumers and communities in advocating for their rights and racial justice; and work to end all systems of oppression within their communities.
