WithinReach Launches New Equity Statement
We are proud to share our new Racial Equity Statement! As an organization, we are committed to racial equity, as well as advancing our work to address health disparities, meet the needs of people of color and challenge systems of oppression.
WithinReach believes that all families deserve to be healthy. We acknowledge that race is the leading predictor of health disparities in our community, and that structural racism intentionally limits opportunities for people of color. We recognize that equity work is an ongoing journey and, therefore, are committed to building a multi-ethnic, anti-racist, inclusive organization. Please visit our new Racial Equity webpage to view the principles that guide our commitment to eliminating institutional racism in our programs, policies and practices.
A big thank you to our WithinReach staff, board, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team for their collective guidance in creating this statement.
