Now is the time to show up in solidarity. How do we do that? For those of us that are White, we must do the work! Racism isn’t a Black or Brown or Asian or Indigenous/First Nations problem- it is a White problem caused by the white supremacy that our Country was built on. To end white supremacy we must intentionally become anti-racist. We must educate ourselves on the legacies of slavery and how those legacies impact us today. We must educate ourselves by listening and learning from the voices of people of color while we re-learn what we thought we knew and what was left out of our history books and classrooms.
