FINDING MYSELF IN THE STORY OF RACE: Tedx
This talk with Debby Irving, a racial justice educator and writer, is designed to be a 101 for white people about what white privilege and institutional racism are and how they manifest.
We, the Board and leadership of Martha’s Vineyard Nonprofit Collaborative, believe strongly that treating all people fairly, equally and with true respect is at the very core of our values. Equality is a right for all, not just for some. We stand on the side of justice, in solidarity with the Black community.
We support changes in our laws and behaviors that eliminate systemic discrimination, thus eroding our ability to foster vibrant institutions and communities.
As an organization, we commit to leading an effort to contribute externally to a more just, equal and inclusive Island community and also to taking tangible steps within our organization. We plan to make efforts through our work to create dialogue and give voice to our black community. In support of the Island’s nonprofit community’s continuing efforts to make real progress toward diversity, equity and inclusion - we stand with you. Black lives matter.
