Antiracism & Social Justice Commitment
You are welcome here. We recognize that justice and equity for all human beings of all racial groups, ethnicities, genders, sexual identities, abilities, and socio-economic classes is vital for the healing of Earth and humanity. We create practices that strive for liberation and equity in each body we serve, knowing that every body is affected by the systems and structures of oppression and trauma. We will use our practices to elevate our consciousness in order to uproot the lies we believe to be true and take responsibility for our part in what writer and activist Sonya Renee Taylor names “White Supremacist Delusion”. In order to be true accomplices to our BIPOC community, we are committed to taking actions that will, over time, create progress and trust. We are open to learning, growing, and changing so that we can create a community where all BIPOC people feel safe and welcome to participate at Studio Soma.
