Since our founding, Build It Green has operated within systems where discrimination and racism are institutionalized, leading to uneven distribution of benefits and burdens based on race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, physical and cognitive abilities, and other factors. We recognize we must take conscious action to ensure principles of justice, equity, inclusion, and diversity are central to both our organization and our approach to regenerative neighborhood development.
As such, Build It Green commits to:
We welcome partners who share our commitment to the values of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. A broad network of partners will be crucial to building communities where everyone can prosper and thrive.
Build It Green will evolve as we embrace these commitments and, as we do, the commitments we make to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice will also evolve. In the spirit of transparency, we will update our commitments as they change.
