In celebrating Black History Month, we honor the past as well as acknowledge the present in terms of contributions made by Black women and men towards social justice. As a community and a country there is urgency for radical redress in every sector at every level to remove racial disparities.
The new administration in Washington, through the composition of its leadership and executive actions aimed at advancing racial equity, is setting standards for progress. All federal agencies are tasked with tackling inequality and will be held accountable.
At CVCA an Inclusion Council has been formed to identify and address inequities. The membership of the Council, which is representative of different positions and various sites throughout the organization, is being announced in conjunction with CVCA’s observance of Black History Month.
