Date: 
Friday, 24 July 2020

"I would like to suggest that asking how to continue a prevention program in the midst of a worldwide pandemic actually is a red flag that your prevention programming may not be as inclusive or community-centered as it needs to be. Put more bluntly, the question about implementing 'prevention programs' implies that prevention is separate from upholding the health and wellness of our communities, which is tied to the 'either/or thinking' characteristic of white supremacy culture."
