We recognize that our personal experiences, which led us to this work, cannot possibly represent all populations and the many struggles encountered in seeking support and accessing treatment for substance use disorders. Recent events have exposed the centuries of racial injustice in this country. We know that we have to continue to learn and grow in order to better understand racial injustice in all aspects of our lives. We are certain that things will never improve unless systematic racism ceases to exist. We honor Black lives and we stand with all people of color in mourning the senseless loss of life throughout our country. We pledge to work harder and will continue to develop a better understanding of the hardships and injustices that exist among people of color.

In order to best serve all communities, Be a Part of the Conversation has the following goals:
• to increase representation and support for underrepresented minorities
• to diversify our program presenters, consultants and audience
• to expand our understanding of the challenges faced by marginalized populations
• to incorporate Black experiences into our daily planning and growth
• to continue to learn and expand our knowledge
• to be anti-racist in our mission and among our staff and Board of Directors

We recognize that we have much work to do. We encourage anyone who is interested to reach out if they have questions or would like to join our efforts. Please contact info@conversation.zone

Be a Part of the Conversation creates effective, culture-changing programs that are designed to significantly increase awareness of the effects of alcohol and other drug use.

We are a collaboration of community leaders, students, school district representatives, and families who believe that having meaningful, inclusive conversations will support individuals and their families in their efforts to develop healthy coping skills and access support whenever there is a need.

Be a Part of the Conversation is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization. Donate today.
