Justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the our org's ability to achieve our mission and vision.

For this reason, we are committed to actively engaging in intentional JDEI work. A few examples of specific actions:
-Building an equity-centered internal culture.
-Intentionally engaging community voices that have often been systematically silenced, ignored or unheard.
-Supporting hiring, compensation, and employment practices that are representative of our JDEI values.
-Supporting continual growth by providing resources for staff, and board members to participate in regular and ongoing JDEI training, monitoring, and assessment.
