Statement on Equity and Social Justice
FFI believes ending racism and advancing racial equity depend on increasing access to wellbeing. Inequities are baked into the foundation of the U.S., and it’s easier for some people to have access to wellbeing than others because of things like race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, disability status, or other marginalized identities. Differences in access to wellbeing create differences in experiences and outcomes, and this continues to perpetuate systemic inequities.
Racism is a key part of what keeps inequity alive in America. But ending racism and other forms of oppression require a broad and deep recognition that we all have a universal right to wellbeing, and we all deserve a fair shot at it, too. Because of our committment to ensuring everyone has what they need to thrive, FFI is an anti-racist organization devoted to addressing issues of racial and social equity in all our work.
