Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
As part of its mission to be a driving force in promoting justice for all and to improve the community through public service law-related programs, the ACBF works to advance diversity, equity and inclusion among its constituents and stakeholders. The ACBF commits to these principles (1) by proactively seeking out diverse candidates for its staff, its trustees, and for those participating on any of its committees or in any of its programs, (2) by seeking diverse and inclusive viewpoints and perspectives in its decision-making with respect to governance and programming, (3) by adopting and implementing programs that serve primarily those from traditionally disadvantaged communities; and (4) by empowering constituents of all backgrounds to be active participants and leaders. The ACBF strongly believes that it provides more equitable and impactful services and programs when individuals from different backgrounds and with different experiences contribute, participate, and are heard.
