Addressing anti-Blackness + Resources for Black People

 

As we work towards collective liberation, we recognize the need for non-Black people to name anti-Blackness, to act to disrupt it and to not do business as usual. We recognize the need for white people to move back in terms of hoarding resources and to move up and take action. And we recognize the need to support healing for Black people. We have designed this month’s content with that in mind.

A Tribute to Diane Rodriguez + Values-Based Leadership 

 

The toll on our well being is real--layoffs, emotional and mental exhaustion, grief, heightened xenophobia, increased deaths, immigration raids, anxiety of the unknown AND known--we are in a time where adversity is amplified. But here’s what else we have witnessed--the way in which we are witnessing folks hold and lift each other up in this moment is a testament to the abundance of adaptive community-building.

Summer Reminds Us To Rise

 

Summer has historically been a time for movement-building. And with both Pride celebrations and the legacy of Juneteenth this month, there is much to honor, celebrate, and continue to fight for! And we are seeing powerful responses from people on the front lines. In the spirit of summer action, we offer resources centering BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities in our summer offering.

Where Are We Now? Spring Forward To Renewal + Justice

National Day of Mourning 2021

 

In this offering we reflect on the National Day of Mourning. Though millions of Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving Day holiday with the mythology of Native American hospitality and Pilgrim benevolence taught in our schools across the country, every November, many Indigenous people choose to reject these narratives and instead seek to uplift and affirm their culture on the National Day of Mourning. As our country wrestles with what and whose history should be taught in schools, reflected in popular culture, and remembered in our history books, this National Day of Mourning is an opportunity for every person to re-examine what they know about U.S. history. To be in solidarity is not complicated.
