The Michigan Community Service Commission joins Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II in expressing empathy and concern for Black Americans across the nation and right here in Michigan. We hear the call to action and stand in solidarity with communities seeking equitable justice.
The Michigan Community Service Commission is committed to becoming part of the solution. We plan to ensure that diversity, equity, and inclusion are a part of our national service and volunteerism work and encourage our partners to adopt new practices and behaviors to live into this goal. To all national service programs, AmeriCorps members and our partners, we hope you will join us and do your part to be a change maker.
We must do all we can to deeply listen, understand, learn and empathize. Each of us must strive to become change agents individually and collectively to advance racial justice for Black Americans today, tomorrow and always.
The Michigan Community Service Commission is firmly committed to providing access, equal opportunity, and reasonable accommodation in its programs, activities, and materials. Please call (517) 335-4295 to request accommodations or to obtain materials in an alternate format.
