“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.”Martin Luther King, Jr.
Across the country, our state, and here in Delaware County, Americans are acknowledging that prejudice and discrimination are as pervasive as ever and they are uniting to fight for their constitutional rights for justice and true equality in their communities.
As an organization dedicated to serve all of Delaware County’s older residents, SourcePoint is committed to fight against inequality as part of our work to help residents live their best lives. Discrimination in any form has a negative impact on people’s health and overall wellbeing, making it an important factor to be addressed in our work with our members and clients, as well as our work within the Delaware County community.
As an equal opportunity employer, we are also committed to creating a positive, inclusive workplace for our employees and volunteers. Therefore, as a united SourcePoint team, let us seek to create an equitable society, understanding that this requires each of us to make consistent, unbiased choices in all aspects of our lives.
SourcePoint pledges to stand with our community to fight discrimination, embrace diversity, and stand against the legacy of systemic bias and unequal treatment of any person, no matter their race, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, nationality, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We will continue to listen, learn, and act in our workplace, in our training, and in our representation of and outreach to our community.
“For it isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.” Eleanor Roosevelt’s words ring true. Let us do the work necessary to unite our community and be welcoming to all.
