CASA SHaW's Statement On Systemic Racism

CASA stands in solidarity with the African American community and shares the national outrage over the unjust killings of black Americans and the impact that systemic racism has on our economic, political, and justice systems. As an organization advocating for the needs and rights of children in foster care, we are well aware of the racial disparity and disproportionality that children of color and their families face. 

For the last several years, we have trained our advocates, staff, and child welfare partners about systemic bias, the impacts of trauma, and the profound, lifelong impacts of poverty and disenfranchisement. We are committed to listening, to learning, and to fighting for equality.

We mourn the loss of life that has sparked protests across our nation. We recognize this reaction as an expression of the deep and unrelenting traumas felt by the black community. This experience is multigenerational and real. We were moved by a protester’s sign that read: 'All mothers were summoned when George Floyd called out for his momma." It spoke to all of us.

We are here for you, and we stand ready to help.

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.“ -Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), Statesman, author, publisher, scientist, inventor and diplomat.
