Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

September 2020

PRO Youth and Families (PRO) Statement of Solidarity is an organization wide commitment.  PRO is focused on creating more opportunities for staff and partners to become informed and engaged participants in the continuous movement for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within the spaces we occupy. Upon forming our DEI committee, we are providing relevant training each month, with the goal to actively and intently engage the acknowledgement and dismantling of historic racism, white supremacy, and systemic oppression. 

The trainings and activities are intended to extend our action of accountability beyond our staff, and our organization to all we serve and connect with. We aim to expand our scope of understanding, our vulnerability, and our transparency, in order to nurture our pro-activity and responsiveness. We pledge to create a positive ripple effect that ensures the greatest benefits reach the communities we serve.
