Hella Brilliant Core Values
Learn to Unlearn. We believe that only by growing our understanding of the ways in which white supremacist disillusion permeates all facets and systems foundational to this country, will we be able to disrupt and dismantle the policies and politics that feed its ability to continue perpetuating harm against folks of color.
All Power to the People. We believe in the abolition of spaces, policies, and procedures that siphon power and resources from the people within a community in order to create a hierarchy of oppression. We actively seek opportunities to push for the redistribution of power to the people.
Follow the Leaders. History teaches us that the people and groups who directly experience the impact of systemic oppression have been on the front lines of creating real and effective change because they understand the complexities the issue presents, specifically to their community. We believe that it is the job of folks outside of that to utilize their resources in support of movements that are already happening, founded by the community, for the community.
Anti-Racism IS the Work. The policies, procedures, laws, and politics of this country were all rooted in racism, so inevitably, the problems we are experiencing are a result of that root. In order to create solutions that are sustainable and actually move the needle, we must always utilize a critical race lens and establish solutions with the race in mind.
