We are a community striving to take a multifaceted, intersectional approach to address systemic inequities in order to cultivate comprehensive healing work at the individual, interpersonal and structural levels.

Orion DEI Team Values

We work together to actualize change individually, in our communities, and in our agency by motivating a shift from education to challenging norms, cultivating better living and work conditions, fostering connection and coalition building, and activating human rights and human dignity-based policies from an anti-racist perspective.
