Statement on Overcoming Oppression

In recognition of the vast systemic oppression that exists in our global society, we are committed to deepening our awareness of and actively supporting communities or groups facing oppression on the planet. We seek to create relationships which are communicative of and responsive to power inequalities that exist as a result of capitalism, patriarchy, imperialism, and colonialism. It is our intention to bring balance to these dynamics through changing behaviors, worldviews, and actions to live in solidarity with those whose needs are systematically devalued. Our work is oriented towards actively exploring ways of addressing systemic oppression and creating shared power relationship for the benefit of all.
