BEFORE WE BEGIN: A PLEDGE FOR JEDI (JUSTICE, EQUITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION)
Reimagine has made a meaningful commitment to JEDI principles. To honor this commitment and in accordance with our values, we are excited to build a community that shares and brings to life this vision. Therefore, before submitting a space or an event for our Fall Festival, Creating Space, we ask that you carefully read and sign the Community Pledge below.
STEP 1: SHARED COMMITMENT
Sign this Reimagine JEDI Community Pledge:
For the Fall 2020 Reimagine Festival Creating Space, we as collaborators and event hosts recognize that, around the world, the circumstances and causes of death are inordinately influenced by race, gender, class, sexuality, faith, ability and/or other aspects of our identity, which should not determine the dignity and duration of our lives.
We recognize that it is not possible to reach the true depth of conversations about how to live fully from now through the end without acknowledging these factors.
As Reimagine collaborators, we agree to utilize the best of our knowledge, courage, vulnerability and resources available to cultivate spaces which are inclusive.
As Reimagine collaborators, we agree to create spaces that are intentional and considerate of the diverse needs of different people.
As Reimagine collaborators, we agree to create spaces that are equitable - striving to ensure everyone has what they need, recognizing that those who have more can give more, and those who need more support can get more support.
We recognize that even if we are not experts in this field, our humility, curiosity and will to grow can be an integral part of creating a space that can hold all of what life and death have to show us.
