Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

As an anti-violence organization, the WCA is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion as it is critical to achieving our mission.

Systemic racism is a public health issue that directly affects the lives of the survivors the WCA serves. For that reason, addressing the interconnected roots of racism, oppression and violence is critical in our day-to-day work. We the Board of Directors, Partners Guild, staff and volunteers of the WCA commit to holding each other and ourselves accountable in this work. We will learn, listen, and create a safe and welcoming space for all who enter our doors. We strive to amplify the voices of historically marginalized communities and be intentional about the diversity of our board, committees, staff and volunteers so that we may better reflect the communities we serve.

We know that challenging our ingrained biases, centering historically excluded communities in our work, and forming authentic and collaborative partnerships is how we will create real, lasting change. Through our sustained commitment, we will continue to keep diversity, equity, and inclusive policies and practices at the center of our daily work to make our community stronger and safer.
