Our renewed vision for the Journal is to be antiracist at every level. To achieve this, we will go beyond our long-standing charge to advance the knowledge of child development, children's mental health, and prevention and treatment of mental illness to solicit and disseminate research that addresses the systemic presence of racism and its influence on the health and well-being of children of color and their families. We acknowledge that our efforts as a journal to address these inequities have been insufficient and that dismantling the threads of White supremacy requires us to take a more active role. We pledge to do the work to advance research that understands the individual, cultural, and societal factors that contribute to the persistent disparities we have previously noted but failed to correct.
