US2 Core Principles
- Guilt and politeness are the glue that hold prejudice and stigma in place.
- Intentions ≠ Impact.
- We must intentionally include so as not to unintentionally exclude.
- Seek to impact someone’s heart, which will ultimately change their minds.
- Every issue counts.
- Growth occurs in discomfort.
- Once we know better, we must do better!
