CASDA was proud to be part of this year’s virtual Duluth Superior Pride Festival over Labor Day Weekend. We invite you to meet a few of CASDA’s advocates sharing what Pride means to them: CASDA Pride Video
We can’t state this commitment too many times: when it comes to our services for victims and survivors of abuse, all are welcome. Your identity is a crucial part of your being, and we take pride in helping you as best as we can. We also invite feedback about how we can do better, so please contact us with any ideas you may have.
For years, CASDA’s Code of Ethics has included the following statements, which we take very seriously:
- Each client is treated with respect, acceptance and dignity.
- We “will advocate for the rights of all members of society, particularly those who are members of minorities and groups at which discriminatory practices have historically been directed.”
- We “recognize a commitment to lifelong learning and continually upgrade knowledge and skills to serve the population better.”
We hope that anyone struggling with the trauma of current or past abuse will feel comfortable reaching out to us for support, and we hope that everyone attending this year’s virtual Pride festivities experienced a sense of affirmation, celebration and community during this particularly isolating time!
