CAI Stands for Equality and Justice

6/5/2020  -  Falls Church, VA

A Statement from Thomas M. Skiba, CAE, CAI’s Chief Executive Officer and  
Ursula K. Burgess, Esq., President, CAI Board of Trustees 



Community Associations Institute (CAI) is unique in that we touch the lives of more than 73 million Americans living in condominiums, housing cooperatives, and homeowners associations. Our mission has always been about building better communities. We believe that the purpose of community associations everywhere is to bring people together, strengthen neighborly bonds, promote a sense of belonging, and build a place where we can connect. 


CAI stands peacefully, for equality and justice in America and throughout the world. We continue our unwavering support of the Fair Housing Act of 1968, giving the right of all individuals to be free from illegal discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin or disability. Racism, violence, and the destruction of property have no place in our communities or anywhere in the world. 


To members of the CAI staff, to CAI members, and to Americans everywhere who are afraid in your daily life for yourselves, your family, and your children because of the color of your skin, CAI stands with you. We will do our part to help all achieve the promise of America: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And we will do our part to ensure our communities realize their purpose of togetherness, neighborliness, and belonging.
