From Andrea Faste, acting Board chair, modification of our Sustainable Ballard vision statement.
At our first Board meeting in 2021 we changed the vision sentence to read:
“Our vision is a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and joyful sustainable community co-creating a world for this and future generations where ecosystems are healthy and peace is inevitable.”
We took this action to reflect our desire to support the efforts of Black Lives Matter. We have also created a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Taskforce within Sustainable Ballard which you are welcome to join. More information on the Taskforce as well as a meeting schedule can be found at: https://www.sustainableballard.org/diversity-equity-inclusion-taskforce/
