Articulates how a trauma-informed and anti-racist approach can and should drive the NCTSN's collaborative work. This statement of values provides a framework for navigating difficult situations and suggests mechanisms for keeping our Network Values at the center of what we do. As a Network, we acknowledge that we haven’t always gotten this right; these aspirational values reflect the Network culture that we are continually in the process of building. Each Network member must be active participants in a process of self-reflection and education, recognizing how the privilege we hold impacts others and using this privilege in responsible ways. Additional background regarding the development of this statement is included at the end of the document.
