Racial Equity Report Card

In September 2020, ACF published a comprehensive Statement of Commitment to Racial Equity that illustrated the organization’s intentions and outlined ACF’s actionable goals embedded within its five-year strategic framework. The statement and its glossary of terms are a result of an 18-month process of learning, focus groups, and public forums that build on critical race theory and other resources shared in the statement.

Since releasing the statement a board and staff Equity Committee has stewarded and monitored the progress towards our goals. We have achieved success, learned from failures, and discussed policies and decisions that challenge our assumptions.

The statement itself continues to be a resource throughout our sector and has been viewed over 2000 times since it was published.
This is our report card to you, our community, about our first year of this endeavor. We will continue to release these reports on an annual basis and invite you to question, comment on, and keep us accountable to our equity promises.
