  • Value diversity and respect others, without regard to race, color, creed, age, sex, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, or handicapped individual.

Anti-Racism and Ethnic Discrimination Statement

We, the United Way of West Florida Board of Directors and employees, stand committed to affirming our identity as an anti-racist organization.

We recognize that systemic racism, unjust policies and practices in our institutions, and other forms of oppression have - and continue to - marginalize entire populations of people. While racism and prejudice are not always conscious, their consequences are always dehumanizing.

We denounce all forms of racism and discrimination. They have no place in our society and undermine our efforts to create a community where all people can realize their full potential.

We stand committed to challenging and correcting inequities and ensuring that those whose voices have been quieted are heard. We will continue to work alongside all stakeholders and partners to foster opportunities for education and awareness to create a more equitable community for all.
