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.

2

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

3

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.

4

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.

5

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.

6

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.
