Keystone Policy Center Commitment

Keystone Policy Center’s mission is to inspire leaders to rise above entrenched positions to reach common higher ground. The complex work of collaboration, inclusion, and equity are essential to accomplishing this mission.

Recent tragic events bringing national attention to issues of violence and police brutality, the ongoing devastation and health disparities of COVID-19 on racial and ethnic minorities, and the economic crisis disproportionately affecting black and brown people, have brought to the forefront continuing injustices and inequities in our society and have given urgency to further raise up these values in our work.

We commit to continually learn and hold ourselves accountable, to better understand and confront biases – including our own – that perpetuate systemic racism and discrimination, and through the power of collaborative decision making give greater voice to the people and communities most affected by the issues we are addressing.
