A Statement Regarding Diversity and Inclusion
Even though diversity and inclusion are and always have been integral parts of the core Blind Beginnings values, we do of course recognize that there is always room for us to grow, listen, learn and participate in support of anti-racism. For this reason, we have formed a Diversity Committee that consists of board and staff members in order for us to take meaningful action in support of Black Lives Matter and other organizations that work against systemic racism against Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC).
The Blind Beginnings staff are currently in the office Tuesdays and Fridays 9:00AM – 4:30PM, and are available by phone or email the rest of the week.
If you have any questions please contact one of our staff. For program updates specifically contact email@example.com
