Our Message Against Systemic Racism and its Impact on Men We Serve
Over the past 27 years CFH has been working in partnership with the men and our community, in large part, to fight against the impact of institutional racism. We are committed to doing more to make CFH and our community a more equitable, and safe place for Black staff members, and the Black men we serve. To that end, we will strive to listen with an open heart and seek to understand. We will use our voices to deepen our community’s understanding of how systemic racism is at the heart of homelessness in our country. And we will use our influence and privilege to change systems and policies that further systemic racism. We pledge to stand up and speak up for those who are negatively impacted by systems of inequity and oppression in our community. We ask all our supporters to join us in this crucial work.
