A Statement on Racial Justice

VCRN’s mission is to respond to recent traumatic events in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We acknowledge that the current social unrest due to the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor has brought racial trauma painfully to the forefront of our collective minds and hearts. The news cycle and protests across the Commonwealth demand we bear witness to deep wounds that exist within the Black community. But this is not just recent trauma; Black Virginias have experienced racial trauma for hundreds of years. VCRN stands in support of the protestors calling for an end to white supremacy and seeking to dismantle the systems that maintain racial inequities. Healing trauma is central to the work of our volunteers, and we believe EMDR can be a powerful tool in the treatment of racial trauma. Preventing racial trauma is also our work. Thus we commit to relentlessly pursue racial equity in the trainings, policies, recruitment, and leadership of our organization.
