Racism Is A Public Health Crisis
Official statement from the NC Families United Board of Directors to be released today, June 4, 2020.
NC Families United Board of Directors recognizes that for all children in our state to have a trauma-free, mentally healthy life, they must feel safe in their homes and in their neighborhoods. For this to happen, we need to create an environment that supports and openly recognizes that a dialog about race and culture change must happen in our state immediately.
NC Families United stands in solidarity with the Black community against systemic racism and oppression experience every day in our state and in our nation.
We owe it to our Black staff, and the black children, youth, and families we serve and the community we live in to demand change and accountability. To be silent is to be complicit. We ask all our NC Families United members and staff to support the culture change that needs to happen and to ensure that everyone’s voice is heard. That all are treated equally, fairly, and respectfully.
