A statement from the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee of Abused Women’s Aid in Crisis (AWAIC), with support from AWAIC’s Board of Directors:
AWAIC stands with those we serve and is dedicated to empowering our community. We are committed to providing vital services to victims of domestic violence and preventing violence through education and outreach efforts. Our goal is to teach people to live and love without violence. We are dedicated to uplifting our community and addressing oppressive behaviors, including domestic and sexual violence, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, sexism, and all other forms of oppression. We know that all forms of oppression are intertwined, leading to a systemic oppressive environment for all people. We pledge to create an environment that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion. AWAIC recognizes that we cannot address the cycle of abuse in our community by not addressing these issues. We strive to be better, and we will do better.
AWAIC is located on the ancestral, unceded lands of the Dena’ina people. We acknowledge the Dena’ina as the original stewards and caretakers of the land we live and work on.
