Our Equity Journey

Our equity, diversity, and inclusion mission is to build an engaged and representative FRCA Network that recognizes the importance of social, economic, health, language, and racial justice. We strive to promote diversity and equity – and to be a model of inclusive excellence. We will support our EDI development and sustainability efforts by providing technical assistance, identifying needs, training, advocacy, resources, partnership opportunities, and ongoing evaluation.
