Land and Labor Acknowledgement

Our main operations occur in current day Louisville, KY in what is known as the Ohio River Valley. This river is born from the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers in current day Pittsburgh and flows westward into the Mississippi River, which flows to the Gulf of Mexico. The name "Ohio" comes from the Seneca language word, Ohi:yo' (oh-hee-yoh), lit. "Good River”.

We acknowledge all of the more than human beings; plants, animals, mineral, bacteria, fungi and reptiles and beyond that have been growing and decaying, moving and planted for millions of years here. The first people of this land have a history that spans 11,000 years that we know of and many groups of people have lived, hunted and stewarded this land including:

  • Osage (pronunciation - oh sage —wah-zah-zhay)

  • Hopewell/Adena

  • Shawnee (Shawano)

  • Cherokee (pronunciation - Juh luh gee)

We honor all of the indigenous nations and their land with great gratitude and acknowledge the genocide and continuous displacement of indigenous peoples. We also acknowledge the enslaved Africans whose labor built our nation during the colonial era and beyond. We acknowledge the harm inflicted upon the indigenous communities and people of color across the country, which inspires our ongoing work.

Because most of our courses are online at this time, we also want to acknowledge the structures in which our technology is mediated, including somewhere around 75 million servers half a million miles of undersea cable sit on unceded indigenous land and diverse ecosystems. We also acknowledge the rare minerals that are used and mined for our technology. Specifically, the Democratic Republic of the Congo - whose brutal civil war is financed by the mining and extraction of the three T’s (conflict minerals are tin, tantalum, tungsten).

Please see our Statement of Inclusion on our About Us page to see our commitments and work we are doing to actively dismantle oppressive systems and navigate reconciliation and reparations, specifically in the mental health field.
