Intention Statement

Terra recognizes that it operates within a society and systems shaped by white supremacy and the exclusion, exploitation, and marginalization of Indigenous, Black, and people of color.

Terra strives to understand and be accountable for how white supremacy continues to impact its work at an organizational and systemic level and to address harm.

Our intention is to build a foundation of knowledge and skills to be an antiracist organization, to understand and respond to systemic racism that creates barriers and inequality in the workplace and in society.

Our goal is to actively promote equity and diversity through an antiracism lens through policies processes and practices.
