We are being challenged to go beyond educating those we serve in rural Guatemala and educate ourselves about the layered ways that racism and systemic discrimination perpetuate the cycle of generational poverty, both in Guatemala and the United States.
CoEd is committed to the following action steps:
First, developing a deeper understanding of how we play a role in systemic racism and how we can enact positive change in response.
Second, continuing to diversify our staff, boards, and committees.
Third, providing paid time off for all employees to exercise their right to vote. We must all do our part and this list is only the start.
