#SAY THEIR NAMES
“Equity is the measured experience of individual, interpersonal, and organizational success and well-being across all stakeholder populations and the absence of discrimination, mistreatment, or abuse for all. Equity is achieved by eliminating structural barriers resulting from historical and present-day inequities and meeting individuals’, groups’, and organizations’ unique needs.”

—Lily Zheng, DEI Deconstructed

Where We Stand

Our bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits continue to respond and try to make sense of the violence and hate we are living through. Journey Mental Health Center stands strong in our belief that Black Lives Matter. We recognize the urgency to stop Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) hate and disrupt white supremacy culture in all its forms. As mental health professionals dedicated to being anti-racist and promoting healing, we see the pervasiveness and deeply harmful impact of racialized violence, historical trauma, and gender-based oppression. We see and feel the pain that our Black, Latinx, AAPI, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ communities continue to live through. We stand in solidarity inspired by both Fannie Lou Hamer’s “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired” and Dolores Huerta’s “¡Sí, Se Puede!”. We are committed to being braver and bolder in order to Nurture Belonging, Promote Equity, and Build Racial Justice in our agency and community.

“Belonging means more than just being seen. Belonging entails having a meaningful voice and the opportunity to participate in the design of social and cultural structures. Belonging means having the right to contribute to and make demands on society and political institutions.”
