CASA of New Hampshire stands in solidarity against any kind of injustice, violence, or brutality that inflicts undue harm on or disadvantages another human being. Racism is reprehensible and has no place in our society. In fact, inequality, inequity, and disproportionality exists across all facets of our society, including our work with children who have experienced abuse or neglect. We believe in the freedom of expression through peaceful, lawful demonstration and that every voice has the right to be heard.
The senseless and inhumane deaths that have gripped the nation over the past several weeks serve as a stark reminder that education and conversations have to continue, and there remains so much more we can all do to see change.
As an organization, CASA believes it’s important that we align with our mission, vision, and values, inclusively to understand and promote the well-being of our network and build multicultural competence among our staff and volunteers. By doing this, we are working to ensure equitable outcomes for all children, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.
These sobering times serve as a reminder that it’s going to take all of us working together to make life better for ourselves, each other, the children, the families, and the communities that we serve.
