From Arkansas CASA Association – Arkansas CASA stands with all people affected by racism and injustice. In order to reach our goal of ensuring that every child and family has a safe and positive future, we recognize not only that pain must be acknowledged but true progress must be made.
From National CASA Association – National CASA Association 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.
Pulaski County CASA recognizes that people of color are overly represented in the foster care system and that there is a disproportionality in positive outcomes for families of color. We also recognize that our organization needs continued growth in diversity among our Board and Volunteers.
We commit to increase our training on diversity, promote anti-racism, seek and welcome diversity, and review our processes to ensure families of color are not treated unfairly by our program. We commit to having tough conversations and being teachable. We proudly stand alongside National CASA Association and Arkansas CASA Association in supporting our children, families, and colleagues of color.
