Listening to what people of color have to say is important

Listening and discussing

Racism can be hard to talk about, but it’s even harder for people of color to deal with in their everyday lives. We must recognize and listen to what they have to say before forming our opinions. Listen to real stories and educate yourself on facts before discussing systemic racism with a friend or family member. Amplify Black voices because Black Lives Matter should be considered a fact and not a political statement. Let’s keep this momentum going and continue the fight into this year.
