  • Equity is an ardent journey toward well-being as defined by the affected
  • Equity demands sacrifice and redistribution of power and resources in order to break systems of oppression, heal continuing wounds, and realize justice
  • To achieve equity and social justice, we must first root out deeply entrenched systems of racism
  • Equity proactively builds strong foundations of agency, is vigilant for unintended consequences, and boldly aspires to be restorative
  • Equity is disruptive and uncomfortable and not voluntary
  • Equity is fundamental to the community we want to build
