The Hartford Foundation Equity Pledge
I stand with others in the Greater Hartford community who are committed to the long-term work of dismantling systemic racism.
"Unless and until we acknowledge the insidious problem of systemic racism and persistently act against the status quo, we are destined to repeat a vicious cycle which erodes our society in ways that none of us will be able to escape.
Each of us can and must do more."
-Jay Williams, President, Hartford Foundation for Public Giving
Dismantling Structural Racism
The “dual pandemics” of COVID-19 and systemic racism affirmed our commitment to dismantle the racist structures that are barriers to health, safety, education and prosperity for tens of thousands of our neighbors across the Hartford region.
I promise to do my part to:
Strive for Inclusion
Create More Opportunity for All
