Equity Calls Us to Listen, Understand, Respect, Respond – Stebbins (amendment to Article II, which will be placed on the final agenda)

Frances, I think I understand how “responding” would be part of an Accountability Value, and how it addresses something “missing” from the Proposed Revision.

I’ve also been wishing I had used more words to explain in more detail what I feel is “missing” from the Equity Value. If I had used more words, I might have come up with something like: “Every person is inherently worthy and has a right to flourish with dignity, love, and compassion. We covenant to listen, understand, respect and respond to one another in ways that prevent and address inequities. We use our time, wisdom, attention, and money to build and sustain fully accessible and inclusive communities, advancing equity for all.”
