Next Stage stands in solidarity against systemic racism and oppression in our country and our community. Our firm is about the advancement of social good, but we know this can’t fully happen until we recognize systems of injustice in our communities, in our sector, and in our minds, and work to dismantle them.

We have work to do. Our firm has committed to walking the long road to racial justice. We will listen to Black voices and follow the lead of organizations who are already engaged in this work. We will examine the ways our firm can develop and implement anti-racist policies in our own work.

When injustice is systemic, it’s up to all of us to roll up our sleeves and get to work. We are starting with ourselves.
