I value and accept all people regardless of race, gender, sexual identity, age, ability, religious belief, and economic status. I acknowledge my privilege as a white cis-gendered female privileged by social, economic, and educational advantages that are inaccessible to most people due to unjust, exclusionary systems of power.
I reside on lands ceded by force from the Kathlamet, Wasco, Wishram, Clatsop, and Clackamas people.
I aim to offset my own complicity in unjust systems of power through an on-going commitment to societal change. My efforts are informed and supported by teachers who are directly impacted by the harm of colonialism, capitalism, and white supremacy.
