“We decided to focus on Racial Equity because without it, Social Justice and Inclusion are Delusions.”
– James Evans, CARE CEO
REDI = Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
REDI works outside the traditional framework of DE&I. Often DE&I is performative, done to look as though diversity is the goal. For this reason, DE&I initiatives seldom last long, rarely transfer power to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color [BIPOC], or create systemic and equitable shifts within the organizations that innate them.
Thanks to Maddie’s Fund and Petsmart Charities, CARE is able to offer coursework that helps students look critically at our current and historical failures as it pertains to Racial Equity. CARE seeks to put committed organizations and individuals on a path to greater truth and understanding, and eventually to Action.
Please note, this coursework is not designed to uplift BIPOC Americans or degrade those who are not. Our intention is to identify the value in what’s missing and inspire others to reimagine the power in “We [All] the People.”
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” – MLK
CARE’s REDI course is an introductory guide to understanding Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. The coursework consists of videos and graphics that are shareable and activities that are meant to get you thinking about the current climate, as well as view what else is going on around the country. By taking this course, you are already committing to your own personal journey toward being an advocate for social justice and an ally to all BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) communities. It is what you do after the course that will make all the difference.
Note: Completion of the course should take less than four hours. You do not need to complete the course in one sitting. At the conclusion of the course, you must pass a quiz with a score of 85% or better to receive certification. If you do not pass the first quiz, you will have an opportunity to take a second quiz. Note: Bronze Certification Badges have a 2 year lifespan.
It made me rethink my current beliefs about my organization. While I do not believe it is intentionally placing barriers for BIPOC to thrive, the end result is still the same.
Our mission and vision are all about the connected wellbeing of animals and people, but we are only at the very beginning of shaping our practices to really work towards those ideals and we need more hard discussions like this.
This has been an engaging course so far and has given me a lot to think about. I’d like to make an active effort to include our entire community.
