We Commit to do Better.
We stand in solidarity with the protesters rising up against police killings of black and brown people in this country.
All of us at Erika Malm Collective are committed to doing the work of antiracism. While no response can meet the trauma and grief that black and brown people have endured for generations, we are taking this moment to listen deeply, learn, and take meaningful and purposeful action.
We have a long way to go to become true allies. This is a work in progress, and the steps we take will be imperfect.
We will update this page with actionable steps we're taking. We welcome our community to hold us accountable.
As therapists, we are keenly aware of the process of healing trauma and our interdependence with one another. When any of our community suffers, none of us can fully heal.
“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” -Aboriginal activists group, Queensland, 1970s
