ROOTS: Rising Over Oppression Through Solidarity
Oppression exists. At The ROOTS Project, we believe that all of us have the power to help dismantle it. We work with youth, educators, families, and all individuals to tap into the feeling of wholeness that we have been taught to forget.
Reclaiming our potential. Anti-bias, anti-harassment, and anti-bullying are all words that define us in contrast to a problem. The ROOTS Project is about inclusion. An individual who has found her whole voice feels little need to bully, harass, or act on bias. Reconciling with our roots, both the beautiful and the painful, is the first step to taking responsibility, maintaining integrity, committing to self-reflection, and cultivating compassion in those roots.
As our inclusive roots expand, the world becomes a safer and more equitable place for all the generations to come.
