We pledge to not participate in any advocacy initiative panels, advisory boards, planning committees, programs, etc that don’t include the experience of people of color.

“It is incumbent upon us all, especially those of us whose privilege is built on the oppression of others, to share the burden of ending health disparities and inequities for black and brown communities that are disproportionately impacted by cancer. As white women living with cancer who have a voice in advocacy with the scientific community, and the private and public sectors, we pledge to ONLY involve ourselves in initiatives that also include the black voice and other people of color.”
