Park Center’s Commitment to Anti-racism
Park Center sees our need to do more, in every sphere of our influence, and we are committed to dismantling the policies and practices that perpetuate racism in our community and within our organization. Park Center is committed to finding methods of bringing about positive change. Park Center believes that racial justice is health justice. Trauma changes our biology and impacts our ability to heal and recover. We see the disparities in recovery outcomes among communities of color. We see injustice in the availability of mental health support services and addiction treatment, the likelihood of experiencing homelessness, employment opportunities, and access to safe, affordable housing. This work is critical to our success in carrying out our mission. We will do the work now, tomorrow, and until Park Center is a place of equity, inclusion, and safety for every employee.
