Queens Partners Against Hate Coalition

 

Purpose: To expand already existing efforts by Voces Latinas’  Anti-Racist/Anti-Oppression Taskforce which strives to be an inclusive and equitable community in which everyone is included, supported, and belongs where each individual is and feels understood, respected and valued. We aspire to create and promote an environment that is socially conscious, responsive, and empathetic and work towards dismantling structural barriers and social constructs such as racism, oppression, sexism, discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism, xenophobia, and anti-immigrant policies. By addressing, educating and developing policies and procedures as well as safe spaces for staff, clients and community we aim to create ethical engagement to provide accountability and sustainability of Voces Latinas core anti-racist and anti-oppression framework values. Ultimately we seek to promote equity and well-being for all by actively listening and responding to feedback as a tool for knowledge, growth and change.

 

 

Goals:

  • Establish a steering committee of services providers/community leaders to create the first Queens Coalition against Hate Violence.
  • Develop a community survey to gauge personal experiences of hate violence to create strategies and identify barriers that exist in certain communities, identify collective action, and create ally ship.
  • Provide Undoing Racism trainings facilitated by The People Institute to coalition members.
  • Discuss collective action to develop strategies and solutions to community, cultural, institutional, and systemic barriers to racial justice.
  • Hold roundtable/healing circle discussions with various racial and ethnic groups.
  • Create calendar of events throughout the year and next steps.
