Abstract[edit source]

In 2021, the Art+Feminism leadership team took an organizational pause to prioritize creating internal anti-oppression policies. We deeply engaged in this work by: participating in ongoing meetings, readings and discussions, working through past trauma, examining how white supremacy/Anglo Saxon practices perpetuate in our everyday work culture (such as sense of urgency and centering/overrepresenting U.S. culture), and creating operational definitions of concepts like equity and racism. As a team, we believe that we are a stronger organization now that we have the anti-racism policy and equity statement in place. We are committed to continuing on this trajectory as these two protocols are the first steps to sustainable change.
