Fenton is an anti-racist and intersectional organization that prioritizes the needs of those who have been historically marginalized or oppressed.
We do the work of creating positive social change as an act of repairing the harm done to those who have been and are currently disenfranchised and to build a workforce that more accurately reflects the vast diversity of our world.
We believe to truly create change that dismantles white supremacy, racism, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, heteronormativity, ableism, classism, religious discrimination and other forms of oppression, we must learn from the wisdom of those whose identities and experiences closely align with the problems we see today. And we honor the value of their lived experiences — domestically and globally — by continually building and sustaining a workplace that is inclusive and rooted in justice and equity.
We make this statement not as a concluding point of our collective journey. Rather, we have much to learn and are committed to the learning — and more importantly, the doing. This statement enshrines Fenton’s accountability to these words and this work.
