We are enraged and grief-stricken by the murders of Breonna Taylor, Nina Pop, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Tony McDade. We unapologetically support justice for our Black community members, who are only the latest casualties in a lengthy line of Black folx and Black institutions that have been terrorized by white supremacist violence for hundreds of years. Black folx, we see you and we love you.
At TCP, we are proud to reaffirm that we hold anti-racism and Black liberation as core values. We understand that for an organization to strive to disrupt anti-blackness and white supremacy, we need to look inward at our own belief systems, policies and practices, and identities. TCP will continue to challenge ourselves to engage in ongoing racial identity work. We will continue to center Black and Brown voices in cross-racial conversations about race, and create an environment for healing through racial trauma. We hold our white community members accountable in their commitment to creating a more socially just organization through action and cultural humility. We will continue to hold ourselves out as imperfect vessels of racial equity work, with a deep understanding that it starts and ends with us. We encourage you to do racial equity work from where you are, however you can.
