“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.”

Audre Lorde

Anti-racism starts on the inside and works it’s way out.

I believe Black Lives Matter. I stand for LGBTQIA+ rights.

I am actively investing in and working to build an inclusive, equitable, and anti-racist world from the inside out.

As an white-identifying woman raised in the white feminist movement, I am committed to an intersectional approach to my work, one that acknowledges my own biases and whenever possible centers the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and Women of Color (BIWOC).

I will not run away from hard conversations.

I will go beyond “do no harm.”
