Black Lives Matter
We stand with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.
It is within your power to help shape our reality. We encourage all people to actively engage in efforts involved in the creation of an equitable world. Justice, equality, reciprocity, these are words we share a deep reverence for. For too long, the job of dismantling systemic racism has fallen on the shoulders of the people it has most oppressed. It’s time to recognize that each of us has a role to play, and that reform is also the responsibility of those who have passively benefited from the system.
White folks are being called to educate themselves about the many ways in which racism has continually shape-shifted to functionally oppress BIPOC, and to analyze how it has granted societal advantage to white folks over people of color. Difficult but honest reflection is essential for joining in the journey for equality. Below you will find videos to help inspire you along with resources to continue your educational journey. We all have ways in which we need to heal from racism.
With urgency and with a plan for longevity, we must foster the healing of generations of trauma endured by Black folks. People can only heal from trauma when they are truly safe. We must work to ensure equal accessibility to resources, opportunities, and equal protection for all Black people under the law. Black lives are sacred and deserving.
