As LGBTQI practitioners in mental health, we recognize that racism/white supremacy has been pathological and systemic in America since its origins. We also recognize that white supremacy impacts all aspects of life and culture, including within our LGBTQI communities and organizations. As an organization:
We support all those who take steps, small or large on behalf of Black Lives Matter.
We call on ourselves, our friends, our families to support or join demonstrators in the streets or car caravans, to support the hotlines, bail funds and defense funds for those in jails and prisons.
As part of our ongoing engagement with healing and for social justice, we dare to hope that this horrific but breathtaking moment may indeed be a "tipping point."
