Cultural competency is not enough.

Trauma-informed care alone, won’t work.
Becoming anti-racist and/or anti-oppressive is a big step in the right direction, but we still fall short. 
If we are serious about true social change, we must commit to decolonization and focus on liberation. To liberate means to break free from oppression. Freedom is individual, but liberation is collective.
