Our Statement on Social, Economic, and Racial Justice
“As philanthropic leaders in south central New York, we stand with those who seek to eliminate racial injustice. We are committed to do our part both internally as an organization, and in the region. Systemic racism at the individual, community, and societal level cannot be addressed with one-time statements. Real change requires ongoing action borne out of hard work, difficult conversations, education and commitment. We invite all our supporters and community partners to join us in working to address the social and economic justice issues that disproportionately affect the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities in our country.”
