Chapter 13 Standing Trustees and their staff serve the entire bankruptcy community. We assist debtors, creditors, attorneys and the Court in all of the aspects of financial restitution and rehabilitation. We remain committed to the highest standards of professional, moral and ethical conduct. Our members serve the entire United States and its territories. Inclusion and respect for diversity are core values of all our Chapter 13 programs. We embrace diversity in race, religion, age, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender, national origin, political affiliation, marital and family status. Chapter 13 Trustees are mindful that we need to promote inclusion, respect diversity and eliminate bias in our country. We have created this Inclusion Committee to help advance an open dialogue on these issues.
Our mission is to foster inclusion, mutual trust and respect. We aim to assist our members in identifying and eliminating bias and discrimination. The Trustees who comprise this group recognize that we must strive to ensure equal and fair treatment to all participants in all components of Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We are committed to educating and encouraging outreach. Racism, discrimination and bias are wrong. We respect different positions and views and work to promote understanding, knowledge and awareness. We are committed to working towards a diverse, inclusive and representative culture in our national role as Chapter 13 trustees, in our communities and in our own offices.
