Forbes Features Friends of the Children's Approach to Racial Equity

For Friends of the Children, Black Lives Matter is more than a 'Moment.'

We are excited to be featured in Forbes, where we had the opportunity to share how we are addressing racial equity within our organization. Here's a preview:

"Friends of the Children created a three-pronged plan that focuses on advancing two of its core values: 'Put Children First' and 'Demand Equity.' It also asked each of its 22 locations to explore how they could drive substantive change in their communities."

We are grateful to board members Duncan Campbell, our founder, and Gary Clemons, executive director of Friends of the Children–New York, as well as Terri Sorensen, our CEO, for their unique perspectives.
