Because the impact of marginalization on communities of color is so pervasive, professionals from all disciplines must develop multicultural competencies and skills and become active in social justice projects to provide more effective and culturally responsive services (Roysircar, Sandhu, and Bibbins 2003; Sue, Arredondo, and McDavis 1992). To empower people of color, professionals must immerse themselves in these cultures and see themselves as part of the village. Professionals in the village must be able to develop action strategies, cultivate resources, and interact with others to define and attain collective goals.
