Our Stewardship Principles
To empower and inpower Deaf Black Indigenous People of Color (DBIPOC*)and their solidarity community members to become conscious stewarding warriors through activism, compassion, cultural humility, and nonviolent communication when co-creating thriving spaces within solidarity economic avenues on the cooperative level.
It is our vision to co-create transformative solutions to change or to transcend our understanding of every aspect sociocultural problems affecting Deaf communities of color from the roots of our cultural-linguistic hearts collectively.
It is our vision to guide Cascadia Deaf Nation to represent a healthy collaborative version of pluralism, a (multi)diversity in action.
It is our deep acknowledgment that we cannot thrive everyone in our Deaf communities and in solidarity communities thrive equitably through stewardship accountability.
