A joint resolution from the Parents Alliance Employment Project Board of Directors: 

Black Lives Matter. The PAEP Board of Directors wholeheartedly believes in this statement and vows to work together to better educate ourselves, our clients, and other stakeholders on how we can support those impacted by racism and injustice. We will continue to have dialogue on ways we can elevate this message among us while further incorporating fairness, diversity and increased equity for all clients into the PAEP code of ethics and belief statements.
