Justice & Equity Statement
Justice and Equity is an important component of the business model that I am endeavoring to practice and create. I don't claim that is perfect model as I don't believe that money within capitalism can ever be completely "clean." When I say clean I mean completely free from exploitation and violence as that is an inherent part of it's design. However, in order for emergent change to occur that will shift oppressive systems,
We need experimental ways of providing and sharing resources that bridge possible future paradigms.
Capitalism and all its accompanying bedfellows of colonialism, racism, patriarchy,ableism, and more have both historically and contemporarily had devastating affects for "marginalized" peoples including the planet. All these are social constructs and have been human created and be undone but not without looking to how it affects our lives, families, communities, society, the planet IN THE NOW. This means doing both personal development work, being accountable, and TAKING ACTION based on that increased awareness.
That's why I have designed my business to include different pricing. I don't want to marginalize or be marginalized and this is one action to shift directions from the seemingly overwhelming power of capitalism. Everyone has some sort of combination of privileged and oppressed identities, but some privileges far out way other oppressions. This is where Justice & Equity pricing comes in for historically & contemporarily marginalized identities. This pricing is a form of radical wealth-redistribution. BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) & Queer communities need to have access to resources that systemically have been denied or stolen from them and this is one small action to contribute towards that redistribution.
I am also building out the Decolonizer's Reparations Fund as another means for radical wealth redistribution for low income BIPOC/Queer. These funds will be used to subsidize these folks that wish to participate in my services but do not have the means to afford to do so while also sustaining a right livelihood for myself. If you are interested in donating please Contact Me.
I would also be thrilled to explore and hear more about alternative ways of navigating late capitalism that attempts to bridge to the values espoused above. Please Book a Call or email me at the Contact Me submission form.
