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.

This Wellbeing Blueprint virtual event from September 2020 explores the connection between equity and wellbeing. Speakers discuss equitable, transformative change across the boundaries of sectors and fields, as well as the importance of reckoning with the historical inequities of our systems and taking action to disrupt the biases baked into our traditional responses.

The system is rigged, and the solution isn’t just to create more programs for people harmed by these unfair systems. The solution is to reimagine these systems to make our country fairer and more equitable for everyone — which means ensuring that the places where we work, live, play and pray tap into people’s drive for wellbeing, instead of undermining wellbeing for some and enabling it for others.

That’s what we do.
