Share wants to be part of a community that brings about change.
We are committed to actively working to dismantle racist systems, focusing on sustainable solutions to structural racism, police violence, and inequitable economic, health care, and education systems. It requires all institutions, including ours, to ask what more we can and should do to live our commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion – and we must be brave enough to make changes.
The vast racial disparities in those experiencing homelessness and poverty are also stark examples of historic inequity, reflecting an unacceptable indifference to the humanity of Black Americans. Too often being homeless is considered a personal or a moral failing. However, homelessness should be understood as a failure of our system to implement the right to affordable housing and to restore justice and dignity to those for whom it matters most.
