Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: 

The Rape Crisis Center of Milford is committed to fostering a community where diversity is celebrated, equity is ensured, and inclusion is embraced. We recognize that individuals who have experienced sexual assault come from diverse backgrounds, identities, and experiences, and we are dedicated to supporting all survivors without exception.

Diversity: We believe in the inherent value of diversity in all its forms, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and ability. We strive to create an inclusive environment that honors and respects the unique perspectives and contributions of every individual.

Equity: We are committed to promoting equity by addressing systemic barriers that perpetuate inequality and impact survivors differently. Our programs and services are designed to meet the diverse needs of survivors, ensuring fair and just access to resources and support.

Inclusion: We actively cultivate an inclusive culture where all survivors feel safe, supported, and empowered. We listen to and amplify the voices of those who have been marginalized or underrepresented, seeking to create spaces that affirm and validate their experiences.

Intersectionality: We acknowledge the interconnected nature of social identities and experiences. We recognize that individuals may face compounded forms of discrimination and oppression, and we are dedicated to addressing these intersecting challenges with empathy and understanding.

Continuous Learning and Improvement: We are committed to ongoing education and growth in matters of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We actively seek feedback from our community and survivors to inform our practices and ensure that our services remain responsive and relevant.

Accountability: We hold ourselves accountable to our values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We strive to uphold these principles in all aspects of our organization, from our hiring practices to our service delivery, and we welcome transparency and dialogue around our efforts and challenges.

Through our unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we aim to create a more just and supportive environment for survivors of sexual assault, empowering them to heal, thrive, and reclaim their lives.
