I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT:
I am a white woman operating a business on Treaty 1 territory.
White privilege is real.
I have not been using that privilege to actively fight racism.
Systemic racism is real and fighting racism is a lifelong battle and not something to be done when it’s trendy or socially acceptable.
I acknowledge that I need to be more intentional in my support of LGBTQ people.
I acknowledge that BIPOC have different life experiences and challenges that white people.
I acknowledge that statements like ” all lives matter” deny the lived experience of people of color, and that Indigenous lives matter, and
Black Lives Matter.
I am committed to listening, learning, and education about what it means to be an ally.
I am committed to hearing feedback from marginalized and oppressed people and groups.
I am committed to seeking out vendor and partnerships that are actively taking steps address systemic racism.
