NEIPJC acknowledges that this nation was built in such a way that stripped people from their homelands, disallowed individuals equal access to land, to vote, to personal freedom, and to even be considered fully human. NEIPJC acknowledges that these inequalities built right into the system have and continue to cause damage.
NEIPJC stands in solidarity with Black, Brown and Indigenous people. We see you. We want to amplify your voice. We want to leverage our privilege to get into the mess and dismantle what has been built to perpetuate our privilege.
NEIPJC also acknowledges that our organization’s leadership is all white and there is much to learn. You may feel the same way. Here are links to resources for this work. Do you have a resource you’d like to recommend? Let us know so we can add it to the site.
