We believe that everyone should have access to adequate health care and agency over their own health and wellness. We recognize that disempowering dynamics often exist in conventional medical settings and doctor/patient relationships. We work towards awareness of our own privilege and biases.
We acknowledge that many health challenges stem from pre-existing inequalities and vulnerabilities created by the historical and ongoing oppressions of capitalism, colonialism and domination.
As a collective we are committed to communicating with compassion and embracing a culture of calling-in so we can better dismantle the structures of dominance that inhibit better care. We strive to offer support that is empowering, non-judgemental and embraces harm reduction. We act within the framework of mutual aid to build solidarity and collective liberation. We recognize that we are inhabiting stolen Abenaki territory.
