JEDI

Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

jedi@bodyelectric.org
The Body Electric School is committed to radical inclusion. We actively invest in and work to build an equitable, inclusive, anti-racist organization from the inside out. We celebrate and affirm intersecting identities across all gender identities, gender expressions, sexual orientations, races, cultural ethnicities, abilities, neurodiversity, religious beliefs, relationship styles, body types, and economic realities. The Body Electric School also recognizes that creating safe and welcoming environments sometimes requires creating intentional affinity spaces. As such, we offer a variety of events, some for specific affinity groups and others for everyone.
Body Electric was born in the crucible of the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco in the 1980s and has evolved into a movement striving to liberate erotic aliveness. Therefore, we are committed to a strong social justice path. We believe Black Lives Matter, we enthusiastically support LGBTQIA+ rights, we celebrate and welcome all intersectional identities – from neurodivergence to religious beliefs to disabilities and everything in between. We actively invest in and work to build an equitable, inclusive, anti-racist organization from the inside out. We believe in science.

The JEDI Committee

The Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Committee exists to advise and steward Body Electric’s commitment to unmasking and challenging systemic oppressions within our organization and in the world. The committee meets monthly and reports directly to the Board of Directors.
