Our politics and practices have been shaped by communities and organizations committed to working for racial and economic justice. One of the ways we stay accountable to these communities is by continuously asking how to be in mutually supportive relationship with the traditions, organizations and thought leaders we are inspired by. On this page we will map our network, trace our roots, and point towards organizations and resources we believe in.

Accountability Circle

We work with our accountability circle to design programming, refine our theory of change, and stay grounded and accountable to movements for justice.
