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.
