We Are Not Okay

A Statement from Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia

June 1, 2020

We are not okay.

At Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia, our vision of a city where everyone has a decent place to live cannot be achieved without acknowledging the inhumanity endured by black communities for centuries.

We resolve to listen.

We resolve to use our voice to advocate.

We resolve to name racism when we see it.

We resolve to work alongside those who are building a more equitable Philadelphia.

We resolve to hold ourselves accountable.
