We were asked for 100 words highlighting efforts to combat racism and fight for justice for the black community. Racism’s scars are many and they run deep. George Floyd’s murder doesn’t stand alone, and the victims’ names would fill volumes far exceeding 100 words.
To continue the fight for justice and to honor those lives lost, here’s our request. Ask someone who doesn’t look like you to share their story. It may be uncomfortable and possibly challenge your beliefs, but it could also be the start of real and lasting change.
Ask. Listen. Learn. Get involved and change the world.
