CSAVR Statement on Equality

The Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation (CSAVR) is
a national organization comprised of Directors of State Vocational
Rehabilitation (VR) Agencies. These agencies are the state partners in the
State-Federal program of rehabilitation services provided under the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as Amended. The Council’s members supervise
the rehabilitation of some 1.2 million persons with disabilities.


CSAVR is committed to work toward a world where all people have equality.
Racism is a civil and human rights issue, and as such, a disability rights
issue. CSAVR condemns and rejects racism and inequities in all forms and
the systemic manner in which it is used to oppress minorities, including those
who are individuals with disabilities. Disability and poverty continue to
exacerbate the challenges that many individuals face. CSAVR will work
tirelessly to assist individuals with disabilities, with whom we work, to have
full access to opportunities that increase independence and employment and
to provide them with the services and supports they need to achieve the
American dream.


This Statement on Equality leads to a commitment on the part of the
leadership of CSAVR to assertively establish strategies and definable
actions to foster equality of opportunity in the workplace by supporting
initiatives to include underrepresented populations in our own ranks, at all
levels. CSAVR and our member organizations promote initiatives that focus
on the recruitment, hiring, training and upward mobility of staff from minority
communities. In order to serve our diverse customer-base it is essential to
reflect that diversity in our own staff to address the cultural and access issues
that individuals with disabilities face in their goal of competitive integrated
employment and independence.
