Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We at the Joseph Drown Foundation have been profoundly affected by the events of the last few weeks.
The historic structures of racism can only be overcome when we all recognize the biases embedded in every level of our society and when we commit to changing the impact of these biases. We remain committed to supporting programs that empower Black Americans and other marginalized and underserved communities, that amplify their voices and experiences and that drive substantive policy changes that result in a more equitable society.
We recognize that none of us can make these changes alone. It will take serious ongoing efforts by community organizations, government, corporations, schools, police and citizens to recognize racism and bias, to speak up, to empower each other and to create change.
We can, and must, do better together.
