Build cross-racial connections & amplify your impact

Accountability to Inclusion

We can build power in communities of color by applying a racial equity lens when developing strategies, allocating resources, and cultivating leaders.

Five core inclusion principles stand as a call for cross-racial solidarity to support communities of color and indigenous communities. We use these principles to guide our programs, giving, and culture.

Core Inclusion Principles

Fund Communities of Color

Allocate at least 30% of your overall budget to spending in communities of color and Indigenous communities

Hire and Promote Inclusively

Ensure that people of color and Indigenous people within your organization hold roles with substantive decision-making and spending authority.

Contract Inclusively

Work with vendors and consultancies that are either owned by people of color or include people of color in senior leadership roles with substantive decision-making and spending authority.

Elevate Organizational Leadership

Support organizations led by people of color and Indigenous people, with attention to those led by women.

Measure and Evaluate

Produce a year-end report that demonstrates how your organization complied with these Inclusion Principles and provides details on plans for increased improvement.

Solidarity through Community
