Mutual Partnership, Collective Commitments to Justice
We are proud to partner with community based organizations who are actively working for equity and justice in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. All organizations that receive a grant from Pride Foundation sign onto the following mutual partnership agreement, knowing it will take all of us—individuals, groups, organizations, and systems—to build toward our collective liberation.
We understand and are committed to the work it entails to create a foundation of mutual trust and partnership. Our priority is to communicate openly with you and provide the space for you to do the same. Together, we hope both of our organizations will strive to:
- Provide context, background, and purpose when we make requests of one another.
- Listen closely to one another’s thinking, goals, successes, and visions for the future.
- Work intentionally to build a relationship where both our organizations can share expectations and feedback in an open and timely manner.
- Build the kind of relationship where each of our organizations feels comfortable sharing struggles, challenges, and mistakes with each other openly and in the spirit of learning and growing together.
- Be proactive in our commitments and learnings to become anti-racist and anti-oppressive organizations.
- Acknowledge and apologize when there is harm, regardless of intent.
Organizations that receive grants from Pride Foundation must also certify that they do not discriminate in regard to age, race or ethnicity, color, gender, gender identity, gender expression, disability, creed or religion, national origin, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, military status, or political or union ideology or affiliation.
