Catherine’s DEI statement: “Centering a commitment to anti-racism is critical to undoing harmful systems and creating communities where all people can thrive. I spend a great deal of time learning and unlearning the ways in which I have been socialized as a white, able-bodied, person and I strive every day to work toward anti-racism both personally and professionally. As an organization, CSH is committed to examining and interrogating our work in pursuit of transformative change. We see this as our ‘forever work.'”
