Celebrating Black History Month 2023


We cannot work to build a community where everyone can thrive without also doing the work of ensuring that our community members have equitable opportunities and access to resources. At CFT, we are committed to the process of learning, leaning in, and sharing with our community what we’re learning as we go. 

With that, we are honoring culture and history within our work and with our teams and invite the community to come alongside us. This month, we’re doing that by celebrating Black History Month.
