“We decided to focus on Racial Equity because without it, Social Justice and Inclusion are Delusions.”
– James Evans, CARE CEO
REDI = Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
REDI works outside the traditional framework of DE&I. Often DE&I is performative, done to look as though diversity is the goal. For this reason, DE&I initiatives seldom last long, rarely transfer power to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color [BIPOC], or create systemic and equitable shifts within the organizations that innate them.
Thanks to Maddie’s Fund and Petsmart Charities, CARE is able to offer coursework that helps students look critically at our current and historical failures as it pertains to Racial Equity. CARE seeks to put committed organizations and individuals on a path to greater truth and understanding, and eventually to Action.
Please note, this coursework is not designed to uplift BIPOC Americans or degrade those who are not. Our intention is to identify the value in what’s missing and inspire others to reimagine the power in “We [All] the People.”
CARE will be featuring our certification program at Maddie’s® University. The Bronze level course will be available this Fall. If you would like to be contacted when the courses are available, please provide your name and email address below. Thank you!
