West Marin Nonprofits Equity Statement

By June 30, 2020 July 30th, 2020 No Comments

We, the undersigned nonprofit organizations of West Marin, add our voices to the protests against the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Maurice Gordon and countless others at the hands of law enforcement and vigilantes.

We acknowledge the systemic racism at play in our country and county, and commit to facilitate change and foster the inclusivity that this moment in history demands. We recognize that this is the work we must do to truly live out our values of equity and inclusion.

Together we agree to:
  • Carry out our own internal work within our respective organizations to address bias and racism, while advancing equity, diversity and inclusion;
  • Share our learning with each other for more effective action; and
  • Collaborate as West Marin nonprofits to work with our communities in confronting systemic racism.

We draw our inspiration from courageous leaders who over the centuries have challenged exploitation, racism and violence.
