HAND envisions a future where Black and brown communities share equitably in the knowledge, wealth and resources uniquely represented in and between Baltimore, Washington, and Richmond. Despite continued economic growth, the rise of inequality persists – with compounded inequities impacting communities of color, challenging their humanity and opportunity to realize their full potential. HAND remains committed to catalyzing research and bold solutions that realize the promise of a region where ALL can thrive.

 



PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

 
RACISM CAN’T LIVE HERE

This continuation of our Racial Equity learning programming, entitled Racism Can’t Live Here, is a four-part series built to support stakeholders in the affordable housing industry evaluate the role they have in creating more equitable outcomes in our communities. At the conclusion of this program, all participants will walk away with an action plan for disrupting racism and inequities within housing. Together we all can move from understanding to action because racism can’t live here.

HAND’S HEALTH & RETIREMENT BENEFIT PACKAGES

One major area where health inequities still exist in the workplace is in employer-sponsored health benefits plan design. Traditional insurance plans frequently create barriers to care and can exacerbate inequities in healthcare by inhibiting the use of services. HAND is pleased to partner with The Center for Nonprofit Advancement, VitalHealth, and Nonstop Wellness to support HAND members committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion with an opportunity to reevaluate their employees benefits package.
