WFAR believes that under-represented (UR) people attacking other UR people hurts all UR people. We’d like to be part of a new tone in the AR movement. If undermining other UR people has been part of your advocacy we may not fund you at this time. If you choose to phase out that part of your work, we’d love for you to submit at a future date.
