OUR BELIEFS

We believe becoming anti-racist is a lifelong journey. 

/

We believe that how we teach and how we learn are as important as what we teach and what we learn. 

/

We believe that we must  RISE on a personal level, on a collective level, and on an activist level to make the change we want to see in this world. 

“The beauty of anti-racism is that you don't have to pretend to be free of racism to be an anti-racist. Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself. And it's the only way forward.”
