Honoring our history
We must preserve and learn from the past. We celebrate our unique stories, successes and struggles, pain, and disappointments. Valuing the intergenerational wisdom our community has means cultivating meaningful connections between generations. We center youth voices and leadership as we continue to grow.
It is vital to create spaces for learning, reflection, and expression through mediums such as cultural/spiritual arts and literary mediums. We build and lift each other up with love, compassion, and empathy.
Commitment to Equity and Justice
Centering the voices and lived experiences of oppressed communities comes first. We must acknowledge the intersections of privilege and oppression. We are committed to fighting against white supremacy through an anti-racist lens.
Leading with Courage and Passion
We embrace differences and lean into discomfort. We celebrate success and acknowledge the wisdom of failure.
We move at the speed of trust and consensus. Transparency is a top priority.
Building Power and Solidarity
Our ancestors are always with us. We recognize the interconnectedness of our oppression and the work of those who came before us. We ground our work in the struggles of Indigenous communities.
