Our Commitment to Anti-Racism
In the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd, protests have been raging throughout America speaking to generations of violence, racism, oppression, and inequality aimed at the Black community.
At Growing Generations we have always considered social justice, equality, and activism to be part of our founding principles. We recognize that we have focused on LGBTQ family equality and have remained largely silent on oppression and inequality experienced by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). We are a family building families, and it is clear to us that if any member of our family is hurting, we are all hurting. Growing Generations stands against racism and injustice in all of its expressions and believes that Black lives matter.
We commit to Growing Generations evolving from an affirming to an anti-racism organization, and we have identified much work to be done:
- We must educate ourselves about racism and oppression, both implicit and explicit, and examine our biases with the help of professional consultation from BIPOC to guide us in our exploration and self-discovery.
- We will examine and enhance our non-discriminatory policies in our hiring and advancement, recognizing that BIPOC are underrepresented in our industry.
- We will make intentional efforts to partner with and philanthropically support organizations whose mission it is to better the lives of BIPOC.
- We will actively work to make surrogacy and egg donation accessible to underserved BIPOC who need third party assisted reproduction to fulfill their dreams of parenthood.
- We must be willing to be uncomfortable, to have the difficult conversations, to trust each other, and learn from each other.
- We will examine every one of our surrogate, egg donor, and intended parent admissions and matching protocols to confront racism and biases.
- We will assess our mission, value statement, and service values to directly address racism, biases, and inequities.
- We will challenge our colleagues to take on making their organizations anti-racism.
Growing Generations has helped create diverse families all across the globe, and we recognize that until all of our families can live lives free of oppression, violence, and racism, we have work to do.
We want to explain our child that he or she is the result of a sum of very generous acts: most of all that of his surrogate mother and the egg donor who also made it possible for him to exist. This gesture of offering the potential of one’s own body to others is something beautiful. This makes us think that this baby will bring with him this sum of generosity, solidarity, hope and understanding. He will not be born by surprise, but rather our surprise will always be in him, in his amazing existence to which so many people have contributed with professionalism, love and dedication.
