Strength in Diversity

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now” suggests the potential we have in this country to understand and celebrate our differences while working together. Our strength is in our diversity, and it is when we work together that we create resilience and progress. We honor the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We recognize Monday, January 18th 2021 as a National Holiday for our staff, and we will be closed on Monday, reopening on Tuesday, January 19th at 9:00 a.m.

Our Progress

In June 2020, we published an article on our blog, We Are Not Silent or Neutral, as a statement and model for change. Since the article was published, we have worked toward a better understanding of racism and anti-racist practices through ongoing conversations, trainings, and webinars. In addition, our employees have been actively volunteering and donating to organizations whose missions seek to end racial injustice.  

We, at CalNonprofits Insurance Services, have more work to do. 

At the same time, we are proud of our progress as we listen and learn from each other. In doing so, we find strength in our diversity and unity in knowing we are all in the same boat. Lastly, we are thankful to all nonprofit organizations who work to create a more just and unified world. 

About the Author

  • Founded in 1984 as a subsidiary of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), CalNonprofits Insurance Services was established during a time of diminishing insurance options for nonprofits. One of the driving reasons for establishing the association was to use the collective influence of the sector to secure more stable and quality insurance. We have developed, and are known for, our wide spectrum of services reflecting expertise in both the insurance and nonprofit sectors, our superior customer service, and our development of exclusive insurance products, including a highly successful dental and vision trust. We insure more than 1,200 nonprofit organizations throughout California and we are the only California brokerage specializing in insurance for nonprofits. Our clients range from newly established nonprofits all the way to venerable organizations with multiple locations statewide.
