White friends: I’m hearing those who are telling me that now is not the time to talk. Now is the time to watch, listen, and quietly help–not by taking charge, but by using my privilege to elevate, amplify, and fortify the IBPOC who are working for justice.

Please be strong for them and willing to keep your eyes and ears and hearts wide open.

Let’s not wring our hands. Let’s use them to do brave work.

    Thank you so much, Angela. And the graphic is helping with some totally unrelated conversations that are happening in this house right now..

    • Isn’t it interesting how the best of what we do as teachers often helps us in nearly every other context too?
