The Human Services Coalition strives to live in integrity with our vision of a community that embraces the dignity and well-being of all people. The sweeping effects of COVID-19, high unemployment, hunger, homelessness, and unthinkable acts of violence have converged to lay bare a framework of systems that has perpetuated racism and inequality across the country and in our own community.

We acknowledge the limitations of the health and human services sector to adequately address the deeply entrenched roots of inequality. Institutions that perpetrate oppression and inequality have led our nation to vast disparities in health, housing, justice, finance and other systems that deny people of color the opportunities, privileges and protections that are afforded others in our society.

We at the Human Services Coalition plan to closely examine our own role in these issues. We stand ready to listen, to learn, and to effect positive change within our organization. We also will join with other nonprofits both to explore racism as a problem of institutional power and to make every attempt to dismantle racism in our own sector. We stand with all black, brown, indigenous, and other people of color who continue to suffer oppression and injustice and invite everyone to stand with us.
