We need to heal ourselves as we heal our community—to love ourselves by whatever means necessary.
Right to Pass:
Speak with intention and truth, and if you are not ready, you are ables to “pass” until it comes back to you. You have the right to pass but not a right to disengage.
No Rush; Be on Time:
Be intentional with your time—Do not rush your thoughts and be respectful to community time.
Not put downs, teasing or talking over people.
Step up; Step to the Side:
If you tend to be more silent we need to hear your voice; if you tend to be more vocal we need to support other voices.
Try it On:
Take a risk by trying it on—be open to an experience or activity.
To temporary forgive/suspend our “fight” with people in our community so we can hear/listen to each other.
Take your own inventory:
Speak only from your own experience without demeaning others.
Having the confidence to speak without fear of your story being shared without permission.
“Re” to do and Spect “to see”. Respect means “to see” again and again our self and our community in order to see how we are constantly growing.
