CLICK HERE FOR NYCEFT'S ANTI-RACISM INITIATIVE 

NYCEFT is committed to anti-racism, equity, and inclusion.

We believe it is vital to our community and to our work that we work to actively counteract the ideology and impact of systemic and institutionalized forces of oppression, including racism, transphobia, homophobia, and other forms of oppression. We are dedicated to providing trainings that respect and honor diverse identities and that are affirming to participants and clients of all races, gender identities, and sexual orientations.

To that end, NYCEFT has taken numerous steps, some of which include:

  • Revising training materials to reflect diverse identities and to address the impact of oppression and marginalization, race, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability status on sense of self, safety, attachment strategies and relationships
  • Seeking consultation from experts on anti-racism, diversity, equity, and inclusivity
  • Providing trainings on microaggressions that all assistants are required to attend; offering significantly reduced fees to participants from agencies serving marginalized or oppressed clients
  • Including trainers, supervisors, and assistants from diverse backgrounds and identities in leadership positions
  • Offering optional affinity homerooms for: participants of color who elect to be in a homeroom with participants and assistants of color; and LGBTQ+ participants who elect to be in a homeroom with LGBTQ+ participants and assistants 

Please reach out to us with any questions or feedback. In addition, participants who hold marginalized or oppressed identities are invited to let us know of any additional steps or accommodations we can take to make the training more accessible and safe for you.
