Dismantling Racism: Our Commitment

The Commission stands with those who are demanding an end to the systemic racism that lies at the foundation of American life. The killing of Black people like George Floyd and Breonna Taylor at the hands of police cannot be separated from this fundamental injustice in our society, whose branches infect every system, including housing.

More importantly, we pledge to work toward dismantling institutional racism. We are profoundly grateful to those in Washington’s affordable housing world who are leaders in this fight, especially the Housing Development Consortium and the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance – and we will not be bystanders. We are taking long-overdue steps to align our work with anti-racist values and follow the lead of those who have been silenced and marginalized.

We honor all those who are actively working to bring about a better, more equitable world.
