“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

― Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from the Birmingham Jail


A core value embraced by Concern for Independent Living is that all persons should be able to live their lives with the dignity and respect they rightfully deserve.  There are no exceptions.  All people are created equal and have a basic human right to equal treatment: equal rights, equal protections and equal opportunities.  Sadly, we know that our society has woefully missed this mark and so we stand with all people – especially our brothers and sisters of color – who are peacefully working for change and making their voices heard.  For nearly 50 years our organization has worked hard to advocate for those whose voices were not heard.  We must continue to work together to promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion for every American.  We must confront our own biases and commit to change.

It’s time for each and every one of us to start listening.
