Empowered Pathways Statement Regarding Racial Inequality And Discrimination
The recent images of violence and the growing chorus of voices calling for justice and equality are shining a bright light on harsh and agonizing examples of racial discrimination and prejudices that exist in our country. Those images and sounds are powerful reminders that there is much work to be done.
Empowered Pathways stands together with others rising up against racial inequality and all forms of discrimination. We add our voices to join the difficult discussions needed to uncover and face the realities of racism and bias.
As we begin, we are reminded of one simple fact that fundamentally defines and connects together every person in our country, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, age, or nationality. The basic fact is that we are all members of the same race... it is the Human Race.
The staff, board members and volunteers of Empowered Pathways are committed to help and support the needs of our clients and honor the rich tapestry of the diverse communities we serve. As we begin this important dialog with our clients, local leaders, educational groups and representatives, we look forward to helping to identify meaningful changes that will finally lead to equality, inclusion, and opportunity for all.
There is a lot of work to do. Let’s get this conversation started and work together.
