When we center the experiences of Black, Indigenous, People of color, it requires a radical shift in power, voice and comfort.
Racial equity is intertwined in every aspect of this work. It is a process that calls out the systemic impact of our actions, and an outcome that we thrive for.
This work is deeply personal. We integrate personal and professional experiences to foster authentic and courageous spaces.
The report below represents a guiding recommendation for how to develop Amara's 29-acre property outside of Tacoma. It highlights a holistic vision for how to support self-reliance and resilience for youth and families most impacted by foster care and adoption, leading with people of color. This report is a glimpse into our work alongside community members and elders, the stories of heartbreak and joy, and the gifts of grace and compassion shared with one another.
The community recognized that this holistic vision is ambitious and will come together in phases with a continued commitment to building social capital and funding centered in racial equity. This is just the beginning!
