Matthew Evans
President, LA-CAMFT

Dear colleagues,

In August, LA-CAMFT’s Diversity Committee facilitated a Roundtable Discussion called “Anti-Racism: A Movement Not a Moment.” From the Roundtable Discussion, the following areas of change were identified: Education and Training, Support Groups, Mentorship, Outreach and Accessibility, and Policy Change. Since having established short-term goals with immediate action steps and long-term goals for each area of change, progress has been made towards these goals, but it will take time to rectify the oppression, injustice, and implicit bias that has become so entrenched within our society.

It is the aim of the Diversity Committee and LA-CAMFT’s Board of Directors to progress towards lasting change within LA-CAMFT and the local and state mental health community. If you are interested in being a part of this movement contact Christina Cacho Sakai, Diversity Committee Chair, at DiversityCommittee@lacamft.org or me at president@lacamft.org.

Best regards,

Matthew Evans, LMFT
