My role as construction communicator at PRR centers on keeping the public informed about what’s happening around them so they can keep moving and living their lives. The dynamic nature of construction means something is happening every day, so there’s always something to plan for and say. When I’m not working, I like to hike near Mt. Rainier, travel anywhere warm, visit as many national parks as possible, and hang out with my dogs and husband.
An anti-racist PRR dismantles systems of advantage based on race when and wherever possible. We engage staff of all racial identities in dismantling white supremacy culture at work. This includes personal ideologies, beliefs, and behaviors. And, it includes removing white supremacy culture from the systems, cultural messages, institutional policies, procedures, and practices that PRR and our staff interact with and inform. We believe it is not enough to be “not racist.” We must be “anti-racist.”
