1. How will you advance racial equity and social justice through the arts at p:ear?

2. Describe your past experience teaching and facilitating art programming and how that will inform your work at p:ear?

EQUITY AND INCLUSION

We believe in the young people at p:ear and in their unique, creative and powerful place in our community. In order to help youth live healthy and

meaningful lives, p:ear must combat the structural and institutional systems and personal attitudes and behaviors that exist to create and perpetuate racial, social, economic inequities in our community.

p:ear respects and celebrates the diversity, creativity and strength of the p:ear community. Equity and inclusion are a priority across all parts of our organization from programs to administration to personal development. We commit to creating a culture of inclusion, self-reflection, and personal growth. We are committed to using our time and resources to help identify and eliminate disparities based on identity and to promote equitable and inclusive access to our programs. We do this work so we can live in a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

p:ear is building dynamic relationships based on this understanding. Equity means examining our weaknesses and identifying disparities where they arise. It means aligning with needs and redistributing resources. Equity at p:ear means a thoughtful approach and compassionate action, which includes advocacy in the community and equity education in all areas that p:ear touches and beyond.

Because p:ear is deeply rooted in compassion – which we define as a relational act of understanding another’s experience while providing a safe space – we

commit to deep, program-wide and viscerally equitable practices for homeless and vulnerable youth as they access our programs. We call this love.

At p:ear, our work starts with the realities of today. It ends when young people find and embrace tomorrow. Our beauty—our core-essence—is in everything in between. It’s in the kids, their daily experiences, their struggles, and triumphs. It’s in their journey. We believe every homeless youth has a vibrant future.

p:ear respects and celebrates the diversity, creativity and strength of our community. Equity and inclusion are a priority across all parts of our organization.
