Collaboration Not Competition is all about addressing the ways white supremacy culture and anti-Blackness show up in our work, foster environments of scarcity, and stifle relationship- and power building. One of the antidotes to this is normalizing communicating about it when it comes up (e.g., internally, with funders, partner organizations, stakeholders, etc.).
