Diversity & Inclusion

Beautiful is more than just clean and green. Beautiful is justice. Beautiful is equity. Beautiful is diversity. Beautiful is community. At Keep America Beautiful®, we stand in solidarity with those peacefully demanding what is beautiful.

As the largest community improvement organization in the United States, with affiliate organizations in hundreds of diverse neighborhoods across the country, Keep America Beautiful® confirms our belief a beautiful America is not only clean and green but also an environment where empathy and justice guide us all.

We believe a beautiful America is made up of proud communities and unique, interconnected people – and that diversity, inclusion, compassion, caring, equity, and justice are tenets of a better society for everyone. These are challenging times in our nation’s history. We need courage and hope, along with concerted and peaceful action. There are many things we do every day to beautify our America. And the one beautiful thing we must do—once and for all—is end discrimination in all its forms.

As part of our operational values, Keep America Beautiful has developed the following diversity and inclusion statements to honor and celebrate our differences:
