BLACK LIVES MATTER.
RISE is committed to challenging racism, inequity, bias, and power. As a community organization that works in partnership with the participants we serve, we see the impact that racism and discrimination has on our children and families. We know that the work of dismantling these systems of oppression begins with us.
At RISE we commit to leaning into our work to be more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and just. We will do this through the education and development of RISE staff, the Board of Directors, and partners, particularly those from white culture. We will do this by leading with our values and adhering to our Diversity Statement.
