To foster diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging across prevention efforts within Pennsylvania.

The Commonwealth Prevention Alliance (CPA) is committed to promoting equality and integrity for all individuals, regardless of their race, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or any personal characteristic. We firmly believe that discrimination of any kind has no place in our society, let alone in the field of substance abuse and misuse prevention, and we have zero tolerance towards any form of discrimination or harassment within our organization. We strive to create and maintain a safe and inclusive environment for everyone involved in our mission, and we are dedicated to upholding these values in all aspects of our work.

“True diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging can only be achieved when every voice is heard, and every perspective is valued.”

The importance of CPA’s DEIB committee is that it represents every individual. This quote perfectly summarizes the need to hear everyone’s ideas and opinions so that decisions made are in the best interest of all.
