Equality. Inclusion. Social Justice.
These are the values CARE works toward every day. But these values are under threat in the United States and around the world. We are horrified by the unjust murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and countless others. These injustices, on top of a growing global pandemic, have left us with a myriad of emotions — from anger to sorrow, resignation to fury. If you’re feeling this way, know that you are not alone.
For 75 years, CARE has fought alongside the most vulnerable and marginalized communities around the globe to defeat poverty and achieve social justice, equality, and dignity for all. As CARE’s poverty-fighting work extends into domestic communities for the first time, we remember that to be anti-poverty in the United States is to be anti-racist.
