Black Lives Matter

I believe:

  • kindness, happiness, and empathy can change the world; 
  • that these nouns represent hard work, not easy choices, and that choices are often constrained by factors like race, ethnicity, gender, income, and sexuality; 
  • that people who are white, like me, have an extra responsibility to make America, and the world, less racist. 

While, like many white Americans, I live in a bubble of privilege and cannot truly understand the lives of Black Americans, I am committed to making Chantilly Mediation and Facilitation an anti-racist organization. 

How? 

  • By balancing both accuracy and inclusion in my marketing materials, and avoiding appropriation of images of Black people. 
  • By being committed to helping communities in which I’m active to deepen their understanding of racism and to choose inclusive practices. 
  • By noticing racial dynamics in client interactions and recommending clients work with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion experts (primarily those who are, themselves, Black or otherwise non-white) when appropriate. 
  • By talking openly about race whenever I have the opportunity to do so, because white people’s silence about race only perpetuates the systems that oppress Black people.
  • By openly and graciously accepting being called out whenever my actions are racist. No, seriously - if you see me do something racist, please tell me.
