Passion Impact stands against all hate, prejudice, biased actions and speech toward any community or systemically marginalized group of people. We condemn the racist actions and the anti-black policies used against Black people since the beginning of colonization and slavery. We condemn the hate and racism that has fueled a rise in anti-Asian hate incidents across our country and the globe since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. We condemn the racism and colonization that has led to the forced assimilation, seizing of land, and violence experienced by Indigenous communities. We condemn racist and hateful rhetoric and actions that perpetuate the notion that any marginalized community is lesser than or do not belong because of their racial identity. Our organization’s vision is that students will become self-affirmed community members who pursue their passions to achieve a healthier world.
A healthier world cannot be achieved while racism and prejudice against groups of people still exist.
A healthier world cannot be achieved while forced migration continues due to the climate crisis, wars, and other violence.
A healthier world cannot be achieved while we continue to ignore that we are on stolen land.
As an organization, we are dedicated to helping youth throughout their pursuit of a healthier world by prioritizing equity and equitable practices, and by engaging our youth and those connected to our organization in ongoing social justice learning and anti-racism education.
