We commit to explicitly pursuing anti-racism in all its forms in our work, renouncing white supremacy and specifically anti-Blackness as we work to institutionalize dignity for all New Yorkers, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, income, immigration status, housing status, or any other factor.


We recognize that since its foundation, our government has existed to disenfranchise and disempower Black communities, Indigenous communities, and other communities of color.


We recognize that the same systems that have been used against Black communities have been used to oppress other marginalized communities including Indigenous and other people of color, women, LGBTQIA+, people with disabilities, and low-income communities.


We commit to raising and empowering the voices of the most historically silenced, violated, and oppressed communities, and using our skills and resources to support their movements and calls for change.


We affirm the voices and stories of Black colleagues through support and active listening, as well as offering this focus to all our Indigenous and communities of color.


We commit to trauma-informed restorative justice in all of the work that we do, to ground in radical vulnerability. We dedicate ourselves to the constant building, re-evaluation, and evolution of consensus.
