Grappling is an active verb. 

There are no simple answers here.

I believe there are many people who want to make a difference

and simply do not know where to begin.

This is a resource to help you begin and support you on your journey,

whether you are just trying to figure out what's going on,

working to use more inclusive language or become more aware,

or doing the work of transforming an organization.

This is for everyone, but understand that the overriding principle here is that those with privilege

are responsible for educating themselves.

We all have some kind of privilege.

It is our responsibility to recognize the privilege we have,

unpack it,

and use it as a positive force in the world.

This is for those of us doing our own work.


Wading in; asking questions;

doing our work - on our own and in community.

That's how change happens.

It has never happened any other way.

We are
