Sometimes I write my own content, careful to give credit to my sources, if any, or provide references to the authors that influence my thought. Other times, I come across content that should not be abbreviated or replicated in any form. The article that follows is one of those sources. Adapted from her book, on the same topic, this author speaks truth to the need for equitable solutions in a way that both validates and soothes.
“Equity is how our human soul resists the temptation of revenge born of grief and sorrow. ” — Minal Bopaiah, “The Virtue of Equity“
Those who have read the article suggested that I provide a link to the TED Talk by Antionette Carroll, entitled “Justice By Design” which is referenced in the article and speaks to the ways in which systemic inequities are part of an intentional design.
“…systems of oppression, inequalities, and inequities are by design. Therefore, only intentional design can dismantle them.” Antoinette Carroll
