What do you do?
I partner with white people who are committed to being in integrity with stated values of equity while exploring ideas of cultural identity, self-reflection, justice, reparations, accountability, risk and duplicating our learning in others around us.
Why do you do this work?
Out of a deep responsibility and commitment to the self-reflective work required by white people in the ongoing practice of examining internalized cultural identity and hostile programming of white dominance.
What do you believe?
White people are capable and able to engage in the abolition of white dominance. It was created by us, benefits us and is upheld by us. White people must engage a more truthful journey that requires remorse and repair before expecting reconciliation to communities of color.
What questions guide your work?
Am I self-reflective? If not me, then who? Am I offering this work in a way that allows for discovery and innovation? What methods are most effective in moving the needle of equity?
