Statement of Compassion & Inclusion

Thank you to our partners at High Country AAA for creating a statement of Compassion and Inclusion for the Aging Network and to NC4A (North Carolina Association of Area Agencies on Aging) for supporting this statement.

As a member of the Aging Network, we pledge to celebrate diversity, create opportunities, and actively support inclusive environments, in which all individuals are welcomed, respected, and valued.

We acknowledge that no action perpetuates an inequitable status quo.

We commit to work collaboratively with all members of society to disrupt systematic inequalities and create a community where all members will thrive.
