BIPOC Well-Being



BIPOC is an acronym used to highlight both the common and unique experiences of those of us who identify as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color. Our pursuit of growth and well-being can be interrupted when we are questioned, invalidated, or attacked based on how much our looks, speech, and customs differ from cultural standards that privilege and prioritize whiteness. Where these experiences have overlapped across communities have provided great sources of wisdom on resiliency and dedication to all aspects of our individual and communal health, vibrancy, and well-being. We each deserve the space to move through the world in celebration and acceptance of our whole selves.
