Honoring Stories and Integrating Curriculum™: How to Build and Sustain Communities
Honoring Stories and Integrating Curriculum™ methods podcast Episode 1, Part 2 features
-Communication as a two-way street in every relationship, industry, sector, and field
-When we ask people to assimilate, we miss out on every cultural, language, and identity asset they bring to our organizations – assets that help us connect with broader demographics, innovate better solutions with communities, rediscover ourselves and our organizations and expand markets
-When we ask people to assimilate, we limit ourselves to rigid systems that often aren’t working for us either – we miss out on the agile change-making systems that come with connecting meaningfully with the full knowledge, cultural expertise, and disciplinary knowledge people bring
-Bridge-building communication
-We exist in societies and a world that has created opportunity similarly and differently for people based on certain combinations of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ability, ethnic identities. Our societies have also used methods of social control through media narratives, surveillance, violence and discrimination to secure access to resources for some while denying access to resources for others.
-Every person and every family, every generation from the beginning of time has experienced these injustices. Some have seemingly benefitted and still today have the most access to resources. In reality, everyone has been deeply impacted and scarred. When we don’t know or understand how our family scarring by society has worked, we are at risk for perpetuating it.
-Every single person from every race, class, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability needs personal, family, organizational and societal relational healing.
-When we limit ourselves to the silos we have been trained to normalize, we don’t encounter the relationships that generate the kind of healing we and our families need to get back all we have lost as a result of the falsehoods we have been trained over multiple generations to believe are normal.

-To get there, we need to operate as one family as a region
-We need to be the village around our youth and families
-We need real relationship and coordinated regional action to show our youth and our next generations we have their backs
-Every person, family, neighborhood, organization and sector has work to do
-Every person, family, neighborhood, organization and sector needs healing too
-Every person, family, home, neighborhood, organization has a crucial part to play
-There are bridge-building organizations that are the village around our youth and families we can join and learn with and from
