IntraSpectrum Counseling’s Statement on Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter. IntraSpectrum Counseling adamantly believes in and supports the Black Lives Matter movement. The systematic, state-sanctioned racism, oppression, and killing of Black and Brown bodies must end. Until a world exists where Black and Brown bodies live free of fear, there is no justice. We demand the defunding of the police, an end to the militarization of police, and an investment in true public safety that protects all bodies. That is the only way to accomplish true justice.

We cannot be silent on the harm and trauma happening in our QTBIPOC community. We know and understand that our QTBIPOC individuals have unique experiences and needs. We strive to honor and celebrate the needs and experiences of our QTBIPOC clients, team members, and community. Consequently, we are committed to dismantling systems of oppression by cultivating a community of accountability, educating ourselves and the people with whom we connect, speaking out against racism, examining our own internalized biases, and amplifying oppressed/marginalized voices.

Anti-Racism Commitment: Our mission to offer LGBTQ-affirming services is bolstered by our commitment to acknowledging the diversity and intersectionality we have in our community. Our work towards anti-racism is an ongoing journey and one to which we are staunchly committed. We deeply value the support and ongoing trust that the QTBIPOC community, as well as the LGBTQ+ community as a whole, have given IntraSpectrum Counseling. We seek to continuously earn that trust by being responsive to the moment, maintaining an openness to feedback, and investing in team members in ways that are representative of the intersectionality and diversity of our clients.
