Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

inCOMMON believes no one should have to face a lifetime of poverty simply because of the zip code they were born into.

This belief statement is call for equity. It acknowledges that unfair and unjust systems have colluded to create neighborhoods where families are held in perpetual, generational poverty. This powerfully detrimental “neighborhood effect” is not a random phenomenon but inequitably inherited among Black, Brown, and Indigenous populations as a direct result of racial oppression and injustice. inCOMMON works in solidarity with our neighbors to “alleviate poverty at a root level by uniting and strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods.”

This drive for equity not only sets the vision for our work but for our inclusive methodology as well. As practitioners of asset-based community development (“ABCD”), inCOMMON believes that community change only comes through the full contribution and expression of each member. Meaningful pathways for participation and belonging are created within our organization and work regardless of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, religious or spiritual affiliation, age, sex gender identity, sexual orientation, marital or parental status, or disability.

inCOMMON affirms that diversity, equity, and inclusion are not an embodiment of passive policies but deliberate actions. As such, we are committed to partnering with neighbors and allies in dismantling systems of inequity, including the removal of barriers to participation both in our own work and surrounding community. We believe the strongest, most vibrant neighborhoods not only recognize the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion but enthusiastically pursue, celebrate, and struggle for it.

inCOMMON acknowledges that a true commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion extends far beyond a simple statement. We invite you to further explore our practice of DEI here:
