On May 29, National Community Action Partnership released a statement about the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other members of the Black community. In light of these events, and in keeping with our continual push for justice and racial equity, the Partnership has drafted a short list of initial steps for taking action against structural racism in our country. It is certainly not exhaustive, however, we believe these are important steps to take, both for us as individuals and for your Community Action Agency. Additionally, we’ve compiled a bibliography of resources for Community Action to understand, communicate, strategize and take action to eliminate structural racism.

Last Wednesday, Partnership Board Chair, Bryan Duncan, and Catrena Bowman-Thomas, Executive Director of the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission, had some powerful remarks during our webinar, “Community Action Conversation in Response to Racism and COVID-19.” For anyone who may have missed it, a recording of that conversation is available here. On Saturday, Bryan addressed police violence and structural racism at the Iredell Hall of Justice in his hometown in North Carolina. A video of Bryan’s speech is available here.
