Educate. Elevate. Engage.
These three words can be a roadmap for the path forward in the fight against racism. Limiting support for the BIPOC community to just a day, week or month is not enough. It's important we take responsibility and advocate for equality every single day.
Get educated on social justice issues. There are a variety of resources available to learn about the issues affecting people every day.
Utilize your voice and elevate the voices of others around you. Speak out against racism, injustice, and implicit biases.
Stay continuously educated and engaged to understand the issues and different viewpoints. Listen to others and their experiences, empathize with the oppressed, be compassionate, be kind, and take action to make a change.
