Our Plan of Action in the Fight for Justice for Black Americans

Dear friends,
It is with heavy hearts that we reach out in this time of crisis. The events of the past week are painful, but they are not new. They have provided but a glimpse into the systemic racism that continues to plague our country. Silence is not an option and empathy is not enough. Now is the time to act.
"What can the DWC do?" The goal of strengthening diversity and inclusion in the DWC has no finish line, and we will continually rededicate ourselves to this mission. We will use our platform to be a voice for change. We will provide a safe space to have and encourage difficult conversations. We will compile resources to help our organization grow and improve. 
"What can I do?" For many of us, this is a daunting question. Listen to your black friends, family, coworkers and loved ones and provide whatever kind of support they need. Donate - time, money, & resources. Take time to learn how to be a better ally. Support black-owned businesses. Run for office. Vote. 
We hear you, and we are here for you. Black lives matter.
