Our Commitment to Anti-Racism
It is with deep sadness that we mourn the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and the long list of those that have come before them. The events of the past few weeks are a reminder, to those of us privileged enough to need it, that this country has been plagued by an epidemic of police brutality and systemic racism for far too long.
It will take each and every one of us, as individuals, families, businesses, communities, cities, states and countries to take actionable steps to solve the issues of racial prejudice and break down the systemic racism that has unfolded in America and the world.
As a team of psychotherapists, we are leaning into the discomfort of unlearning and dismantling our role within a larger history of systematic inequality.
ResilienceLab commits to crossing the road from cultural competence and inclusive therapy to antiracism. We start with ourselves as white co-founders. We start by educating each other, locating our privilege, and amending our personal and professional doctrines.
- As a company, we added an amendment to our professional code of ethics to uphold this commitment, which includes ongoing action opposing racism.
- As a company, we are dedicated to listening carefully and, with continued effort, examining the impact of our own implicit bias.
- As a company, we are using self-education as a learning community in peer discussion groups and supervision.
- As a company, we have formed an action committee to use our influence to demand that laws related to police accountability and brutality are implemented.
- As a company, we will continue to prioritize diversity within our leadership team, clinical team, and client population.
- As a company, we will match up to $1000 on a quarterly basis the funds donated by our therapist community to organizations including:
- Black Mental Health Alliance
- Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective
- The Loveland Therapy Fund Foundation
- As a company, we will use our platform in regular weekly messaging to reflect the mental wellness issues pertaining to our therapists and clients of color.
Black Lives Matter to each and every one of us at ResilienceLab. If you have questions or feedback, please contact us.
