COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY SOLIDARITY, DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
Regenerative Roots is committed to co-creating safe, trusting, and supportive environments for all who are involved in our programs and community forums. We believe that when we recognize and celebrate interdependence and interconnectedness, among People and Place, that we pave life-giving pathways for learning and loving, agency and advocacy, healing and wholeness. Toward this vision, we:
- promote power “with” dynamics and embrace mentoring as both an ethic and an intentional practice capable of activating and elevating gifts at an individual level and resiliency at a collective level.
- seek to invite and catch one another’s stories, to respect and respond to differing perspectives with compassion and curiosity, and to intentionally nurture cycles of reciprocity and Belonging.
- honor our shared humanity and respectfully acknowledge that each of us has a lived experience that is informed and influenced by the intersection of race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, mental or physical ability or attributes, religious or ethical values systems, national origin, political beliefs, and cultures.
- align our words, actions, and values with intentionality, responsibility, and accountability toward dignity, integrity, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
