National CASA statement that the network "stands in solidarity against any kind of injustice, violence or brutality that inflicts undue harm on or disadvantages another human being. Racism is reprehensible and has no place in our society. In fact, inequality, inequity, and disproportionality exist across all facets of our society, including our work with children who have experienced abuse or neglect.... it’s going to take all of us, working together to make life better for ourselves, each other and the children and families we serve."
