“To build community requires vigilant awareness of the work we must continually do to undermine all the socialization that leads us to behave in ways that perpetuate domination.” – Bell Hooks
A world free of white supremacy, caste, patriarchy, misogyny, all the isms, all the phobias and hate. A world where all human beings have value, dignity, respect and all the things we need to live how we choose.
Initiating radically honest conversations that enable each of us to acknowledge, understand, and take personal responsibility for stopping the harm done to ourselves -- and each other. Conversations that acknowledge how we are complicit in creating, enabling and engaging in oppression. Conversations that can lead to liberation for all of us. In a white supremacy culture, those conversations necessarily center the dismantling of whiteness and white supremacy.
Radical Honesty: We practice revolutionary, uncompromising truth-telling.
Transparency: We are open about our successes and our failures, our ah-ha and our uh-oh moments, our "I understands' and our 'I still don't get its.'
Relationship: We believe in the humanity of all people and we will endeavor to genuinely understand the underlying meaning of others' thoughts and actions. We engage fully and openly, building bonds and creating strong foundations.
Accountability: We will all make mistakes. We reject guilt and shame and we endeavor to walk with people from mistake through reconciliation.
Authenticity: We value our differences and vow to always show up as our true selves. We are genuine, living in our truest form, and we communicate openly to strip down layers and build strong, trusting relationships.
Transformation: We reject the lies of white supremacy culture and we work towards being the fully liberated people we were meant to be.
Ownership: We take responsibility for our thoughts and our actions - as well as for our personal transformation.
Humility: We know we do not have all the answers. We remain open to learning (from others and from our mistakes), being corrected, and moving forward with grace.
Trust: We build trust through radically honest, candid discussions. We trust in ourselves, we trust in each other, and we trust in our mission.
Integrity: We strive to do the right thing always. We act truthfully and honorably, we are unafraid in being our true self. And we will do it all even when no one is watching.
