Inclusion, Access, Equity, Diversity

FCCLA, its board, staff, and leadership understand that we must deepen our commitment and resolve to include the voices and experiences of our Black, Brown, First Americans, and People of Color members. It is imperative to embrace a world where Black, Brown, First Americans, and People of Color lives are respected, included, and celebrated. We can only do this by developing and implementing diverse, equal and inclusive programming and giving full voice to our Black, Brown, First Americans, and People of Color students and educators.
