“I believe breakdowns can lead to breakthroughs if you use them right. Maybe, just maybe, THIS MUCH disunity could open the door for more unity. 🙏🏿” - Van Jones
A really quick note from Team Rasa.
We will always stand for unity.
We will always stand for love.
We will always stand for justice.
To this end, we wanted to say:
🌿 Our team is still committed (and always will be) to ongoing anti-racism and anti-white supremacy work.
🌿 Our team is still committed (and always will be) to an open and inclusive hiring process and we welcome all people who embody our values of caring & emotional intelligence—no matter where you come from, what color your skin is, who you pray to, who you fall asleep next to at night, what’s between your legs, and all the other identifiers that are sometimes used to pit us against one another.
🌿 Watching the events unfold yesterday was disturbing and triggering. Our team is committed to both healthily processing the emotions that keep arising—and then choosing to respond from a place of groundedness and values rather than reactivity. We are supremely imperfect at this and we are doing our best.
Today, Lopa took the Rasa Team through this emotional regulation practice, and then recorded it from her parent’s house for all of you. Check it out below.
You’ve got this, and we’ve got you.
XO Team Rasa
