To AHC friends and supporters,
The murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor are deeply horrific – and are only the most recent atrocities in our nation’s long history of systemic racism.
These deaths, along with the disproportionate pain of the pandemic on people of color, shine a bright light on the impact of racial disparity.
As an organization dedicated to providing affordable and stable homes for people in need, AHC Inc. does not tolerate racial injustice. We believe housing equity is critical in addressing longstanding structural racism and the equality gap in our country. Everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to call home.
We also understand we have a lot more work to do. This is a moment to not only reflect on our values, but to put them into action.
AHC is committed to standing up against racism in all its forms and listening to and supporting our colleagues, neighbors, residents, and partners.
We will hold ourselves accountable to ensure racial equity is embedded in our programs, operations, and corporate culture. We will intensify our efforts to ensure that all people have equal access to stable and affordable housing. And, we will help amplify our residents’ voices by promoting the importance of voting and participating in the census.
Building racial equity is a journey. We are determined to move forward and take action alongside our communities, partners, residents, and staff members to create real change.
