Theresa Tanoury-Lombardo and Debi Wahl-James of Casey Family Program's Alaska Strategy Office in Juneau were recently recipients of the Linda Wilson Diversity and Anti-Racism Award at the annual meeting awards banquet, held in Seattle.
This award is given to the individual or team that most consistently acts in ways that honors differences and courageously confronts racism and discrimination. Specifically, the recipient or team embodies Casey's commitment to cultural competence, inclusion and the fight against racism.
Throughout 2006, the Alaska Office worked with local, state and tribal entities in Alaska to provide leadership and collaborative trainings as well as Undoing Racism Workshops in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau, to better address racism and disproportionality issues facing Alaska's children, youth and families. The Diversity and Anti-Racism Award represents one of Casey Family Programs' five core values.
