Collection: Words Are Powerful

This project is the result of a passionate and caring county group collaborating to create educational tools that promote greater awareness around the power of our words. A Public Health & Human Services internal Diversity Action Team initiated this work bringing community partners together dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion. We also partnered with Leslie C. Aguilar, the creator of the Diversity & Inclusion Center (https://www.diversityinclusioncenter.com), to incorporate her six recommendations for how to effectively speak up/respond to microaggressions/indignities. These are included in the postcards and are adapted from her educational DVD Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts: Communicating Respectfully in a Diverse World. The ultimate goal is to encourage the development of a different kind of PC in the areas of professional competence and personal consciousness. Words Are Powerful is a movement to inspire people to “Think before You Speak: Infuse Your Language with Compassion!”
