COTS recognizes the history of racism and deep structural inequalities that persist and contribute to generational poverty in Detroit. We are committed to overcoming these oppressions to create a more just and inclusive world where all families can thrive. COTS embraces our responsibility to create a diverse, accessible, equitable, and anti-racist organization through reflection, ongoing learning, community advocacy, and transformative action.
