What we are seeing now—and numerous other times in U.S. history—is a collective response to systemic injustice, and the desire to amplify the voice of those who have been silenced and subjugated. As a collaborative partner in the fight to reverse inequity, particularly with how communities interact with their land, built environment, and natural resources, Delta has developed close relationships with many organizations doing important work in front line communities. As our country starts to embrace these challenging issues of structural racism, Delta has focused on amplifying our partners’ messages and directing donors to those institutions.
