Race & Equity in Recovery North Star
It is important to acknowledge that this document intentionally and unambiguously addresses the needs of Black and Indigenous communities. We understand that there are other marginalized groups that we have harmed; we recognize that this work cannot be completed in a single document. Each group has been harmed uniquely and will require different solutions that promote healing, equity, and justice. To blanket all groups under one approach would be to ignore their individual needs, strengths, and distinct experiences. We understand that taking a one-size-fits-all approach would be disrespectful and could generate further harm. We have piloted this project by first highlighting the needs of Black and Indigenous peoples. We are committed to making a more just community for all people in recovery. We look forward to future collaborations to meet our commitments to Black and Indigenous people in recovery, and to build initiatives for additional marginalized communities.
The work continues.
