Let us work together, deepening our understanding of racism and creating relational transformations

“If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is tied up with mine, then let us work together.”   ~Lilla Watson

Much of the work that the Diversity + Community Engagement Committee has been doing this year has been about deepening – rather than spreading and doing. We have remained in the relational realm.

Last week, Sarah Corlett shared powerful resources with us. One was an interview by Brené Brown with Aiko Bethea. A phrase from that interview really stuck with me: “Anti-racism work is never transactional. If we want it to be transformational, it has to be relational.”

So, this week, instead of inundating you all with more resources, I want to invite our community to revisit Sarah Corlett’s article and resources with this link.

Working together,

Claudia Lòpez
