By antiracist we mean that we champion policies and ideas that correct racial disparities by prioritizing the wellbeing of those impacted by outcome disparities; specifically, we are referring to Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Migrant people and those who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Non-Binary, Queer, or Two-Spirit.
By social equity we mean equity in terms of race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, age, and socioeconomic status, as demonstrated by equitable and meaningful youth and family participation for all five counties in the North Sound region.
By intersectional we mean that we do our best to account for the complex, cumulative ways in which the effects of multiple forms of discrimination combine, overlap, or intersect.
