The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is guided by a vision for strong, just and inclusive communities.
But no community can be truly strong when it is weakened by systemic racism.
No community can be truly just if justice is meted out unevenly.
No community can be truly inclusive when some of us are shut out of opportunity, of health care, of the right to simply walk home free of fear.
The Foundation stands with those who are exercising their rights and their moral duty to peacefully and urgently call for justice and an end to the violence and countless injustices perpetrated upon Black people over the course of centuries.
We have work to do. We have not done close to enough. We are actively examining and listening for ways we can do better and planning actions to take — in the short-term and the long-term.
And we will remain focused on that vision of justice and inclusivity for all our communities and all people — because justice and inclusivity are the wellspring of our shared strength.
