JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion) Statement

Illustration of diverse people

Community Health Councils, is committed to advancing the practices of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion to achieve sustainable policy and systems-change.

CHC team members, volunteers and subcontractors as well as any associated members or leaders will embrace this commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion by welcoming all community members regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, national origin, veteran status, social-economic class, religion or any other perceived difference. It is important for this to be a shared mutual commitment as we strive for the common goal of creating positive outcomes that benefit families and children.

Our experience demonstrates that bringing people together from various backgrounds and cultures drives solutions by leveraging different points of view. Respecting everyone’s background, culture, and life experiences are essential to collective agency and power in advancing policy and systems change.

Community Health Councils acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands.) We pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present, and emerging.
