To us, it's about not getting stuck in either/or.
It's about allowing multiple things to be true at the same time.
It means accepting others' experiences even if you haven't experienced it yourself.
It means allowing things to be complex and avoiding jumping to solutions or conclusions.
In our experience, it allows for productive conflict and an opportunity to let go of perfectionism.
In social justice work, there is a lot of emphasis put on learning, which is necessary.
However, we find the magic happens when you focus on unlearning, or letting go of all the things you've been taught that promote oppression.
It means getting real about your beliefs and biases, conscious and unconscious.
And, it means focusing on continued commitment and action in aligning your beliefs and values; not on getting it 'right' when you have to.
