No one can do it alone. These problems are systemic. If we are going to actually make changes, it's going to take every single one of our contributions to move the needle. It takes a village. No one person- band, it takes an orchestra.

We are passionate about the idea of reframing NVC so that it is re-centered in the culture and the history of People of Color's experience in this country. But we know that the framing of NVC is only part of what prevents people who come from our communities from participating in the trainings. The average person can’t take off 7 days from work and, the cost of many NVC trainings put them out of reach for many folks. Roxy has agreed to come to Seattle from Oakland 1 weekend a month so many people can get an in-depth training without missing work. And the Freedom Project has committed to raising the funds to make her trips possible so that we can share this important work at no cost to those who participate. We will also help with transportation and child-care if that's needed. Our goal is to strip away the barriers that might prevent someone from joining us on this journey. There is limited space available for people to participate, but actually participating is only a part of the movement to integrate NVC with racial equity. There are so many other parts to play. So many other different ways to support.
