Advancing Deep Equity

Deep equity requires ongoing attention to hearts, minds, behaviors, structures, and systems—it is not a destination

We center deep equity in all of our work, and hold it as a set of continuous practices necessary for people and the planet to experience love, dignity, and justice. These practices include recognizing the impact of our identities on our individual and collective experiences, addressing healing, as well as acting to transform institutions and systems. It is not a destination.
