We are driven by true fairness for all people, especially people who have been impacted by and historically marginalized by systems of oppression, including white supremacy. We believe in uplifting and delivering equitable opportunities to LGBTQ+ people, youth, and people of color.
For us, justice means holding our elected officials accountable to the people, and working to elect representatives who truly have our communities’ interests in mind. Justice means accessibility for everyone, including disabled people and people with limited English proficiency.
Community & Safety
Our community members’ physical and mental safety are of utmost importance to us. We believe in reimagining safety as a world free of discrimination, where everyone’s basic needs are met and human rights are respected, and where the wellbeing of our planet as well as of our people is nurtured.
Our work with each other is grounded in respect for each other, our community, our planet, our cultures, our differences and similarities. We accept and honor each other, and share pride in our work and our beliefs. We work towards complete honesty, authenticity, and transparency in everything we do. We believe in clear, compassionate communication, including in conflict, and in integrating our community agreements on communication within all of our work.
We believe that we grow as human beings when we practice empathy. We aim to go beyond simple compassion for someone or a community by truly putting ourselves in others’ shoes through conversations, actions, and ultimately— our work. We practice empathy with every person on our team, as well as with our community members and our community as a whole.
