That’s in our DNA as a sector. And it’s also in our DNA as a country. By any means necessary, we have stolen land, commited genocide, exploited low-wage workers, all of that to become one of the wealthiest nations in the world. And it’s a fact and a truth that we want to sweep [this history] under a carpet and whitewash [it]. Those are the parallels I’m bringing out in our history and also in our sector so we can acknowledge that and deal with it. Deal with the trauma that it’s caused us as a [colonized] community, society and a sector, so that we can, at minimum—through philanthropy, investment, banking and all the institutions that control money—stop more harm from happening and also try to use our resources to repair the harm that has been done.
