CFPA has a commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) and has established a JEDI Advisory Council to incorporate the needs and perspectives of people and communities of color into the design and implementation of CFPA’s inclusive strategic plan, programming, organizational culture, and policy priorities.

The JEDI Advisory Council meets every other month to advise CFPA’s board and staff on actions that: 

  • Incorporate diversity, equity and inclusion into CFPA’s ongoing and new work.
  • Monitor the progress and process of equity and diversity in CFPA’s programs and communications.
  • Address potential and actual implications from changes to existing or new programs.

We thank the following volunteers participating with CFPA’s board and staff on the JEDI Advisory Council:
