PACE’s Pledge to Social Justice

Recent events underscore racial injustices that continue to plague our country. As our community works to create new solutions to prevent the insidious destruction that oppression creates from continuing, PACE will work hard to set an example and to work beside our partners to be a part of the solution.  PACE stands beside all those who fight for social justice, equality for all, relief from poverty and anti-racism. As a community action agency, we pledge to not be silent, to raise the policies and issues that create and perpetuate racial inequities and work with our federal, state, and local allies, our board, and the people we serve to make true change, raise awareness and rededicate ourselves to strengthening and empowering our communities.
