We must believe that a better future is possible for all people. We know the realities that we face today and we use our radical imaginations to dream of what can be while working to fill the gaps.
We reject the status quo and believe that the hard work of freedom dreaming doesn't have to be daunting, but can instead be enjoyable and liberating.
We love our communities, our students, and our profession as educators deeply. This drives our work and keeps us grounded when things feel hard.
We constantly reflect on our practice and how we can be better while giving ourselves grace and seeing how far we have come.
