This week we are taking a pause to discuss our plans to make anti-racism a part of the culture of Translating ADHD. Both of your hosts believe that silence is complacency, and that we have a responsibility to use our platform to speak out against racism and to amplify the voices of our Black colleagues doing great work in the ADHD space. Here’s the plan:
Financial Support for Anti-Racism.
We launched our community for show patrons today. Gain access to our Discord community when you become a patron at the Translator level ($5/mo) via Patreon.
- 100% of our proceeds earned via Patreon through 12/21/20 will be donated to anti-racism causes.
- 10% of our proceeds earned via Patreon will be donated to anti-racism causes forever.
Amplifying the Voices of Black ADHD Professionals and ADHD Professionals of Color.
For the most part, the show you know and love will not be changing. Our primary format will still be conversations between Shelly and Cam. However, we recognize that the lived experiences of Black people and other people of color with ADHD have unique challenges and we want to make room to explore these topics with our colleagues who have the lived experiences to share.
Speaking on Anti-Racism Topics as Relates to ADHD
Cam and Shelly will continue examine current events from the ADHD lens. This will include, whenever appropriate, discussing relevant issues on the subject of anti-racism as relates to our adult ADHD audience.
