What has your club done that you're We reject racism and all forms of oppression, and recognize that centuries of inhumane policies and decisions have shaped a society that actively marginalizes African Americans and other people of color. We encourage our membership to spend time listening and learning - reflecting on how the history of the US and the history of racism are intertwined.
We must each understand our own bias and our positions in institutional power structures; and then use our own power to bring about changes. To affect change requires each of us to play a role in developing equity with intention. Our role is to intensify the voices speaking out against racism and oppression today. We must also hold our leaders accountable for establishing policies that reflect our values to affect positive and impactful change.
Direct actions by all of us are necessary to bring about the end of systemic racism. Our Work Is Not Done until the Black community tells us it is.
To ignore injustice is to be complicit in injustice. #georgefloyd #icantbreathe #blacklivesmatter #ally #together of? Share a few highlights below. You can embed a video, document, or presentation to summarize the work.
