The dawn of a new year inspired hope and possibility for many, but that same week once again, white supremacy rocked this country's foundation. We must name racism and white supremacy and acknowledge the trauma of bearing witness to violent mobs and fascist coup attempts – the effects of which are far-reaching and, as of yet, not adequately unpacked by pundits or mainstream media. We must reckon if we hope for any chance to heal. Though the crises of this moment are urgent, the moment is ripe for transformation. At the NRCDV, we remain committed to transforming how we approach our work to eliminate violence in all its forms, including economic, gendered, and racialized violence.
The NRCDV will also continue its journey to becoming an anti-racist organization that uses its voice as a domestic violence leaders and anti-racist organization to identify and challenge practices that are deemed harmful to Black victims and that perpetuate white supremacy. We will stand and support our allied domestic violence organizations committed to attaining similar goals. We are committed to realizing healthy, loving, and resourced communities for all.
