TRCC/MWAR Strategic Planning Committee Values*
We believe that how we do this process is just as important as what comes out of it.
As members of TRCC/MWAR Strategic Planning Committee, we dedicate ourselves to upholding and being informed by intersectionality as a means of moving forward as a collective. As ‘strategic planners’ we aim to adopt an anti-racist/anti-oppressive model that centralizes decolonization, BIPoC, nonbinary and transgender people, sex workers, femmes and feminized people, D/deaf and disabled folks, and people from marginalized communities. Wherever the Centre or our work is inaccessible or is unsafe for marginalized communities, we will work to change that.
In our work, we wish to reflect on and value our past as a Center – to know where we have come from and appreciate those who have laboured to create the space that exists today. We wish to address the ways we are complicit in systemic oppressions so that they will not be repeated, and so that we can collectively work toward healing and community building, acting in solidarity, showing up, and mobilizing.
During our process of working toward intersectionality, we strive to: make and hold space for marginalized experiences while being aware of our social locations, honor heavy feelings and conflict, combat disposability while building safe(r) space, and be accountable and transparent to the best of our abilities. We also strive to move toward radical gentleness by prioritizing self and collective care, personal growth, learning and unlearning, and working with the assumption of good faith and potential for change.
*Our values may shift/grow/develop as we move through the process
