ANTI-RACISM / ETHNIC DISCRIMINATION STATEMENT
The Lake Martin Area United Way (LMAUW) is committed to programs and activities that are free of racial or ethnic discrimination. LMAUW endeavors to provide and maintain an environment that fosters respect among all members of the community.
LMAUW strives to proide an environment where individuals are free to grow intellectually, personally, professionally, and socially without intimidation or fear. Intimidation and harassment affect not only those who suffer the harassment, but every Alabamian.
LMAUW recognizes discrimination has contributed to disparities, in the past, present and most likely the future, and these disparities have been exacerbated by policies and procedures creating dependency.
LMAUW sincerely believes racism/ethinic discrimination undermines the strengths of every community in Tallapoosa and Coosa counties and denounces any form of racism/ethnic discrimination.
LMAUW works with partners statewide to create solutions to see every Alabamian succeed and thrive and create more eqitable communities.
Racial and ethnic discrimination is a violation of federal and state law, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) nad other key federal civil rights statues.
