Over the past couple of years, I have come to see that I have privilege, a platform, and with that, a spiritual obligation to not just be a loving, good, equitable, and well-intentioned person, but also a person who knows that just recognizing any unintentional white centering or implicit bias within oneself or seeing systemic racism in the world isn’t enough. I realized that silence is violence, and I must be actively anti-racist in all that I do. To that end, it is an important part of my vision to mirror that and hold that antiracist intention in all spaces created by my posts, services and in my daily life.
If you see how I can do better in holding this antiracist intention through thought, word, and deed in my posts and services, I welcome your suggestions and will see them as gifts of awareness.
