TIPS FOR CHALLENGING RACISM
With social movements like “Black Lives Matter,” “All Lives Matter,” and “Blue Lives Matter,” discussions about race and racism have moved to the forefront when dissecting the problems America faces on its own soil. If any one of these movements have caused self-reflection or even pain, it’s time to start having difficult conversations about race in our society.
Self-reflection can lead to uncomfortable truths about your family’s past or even your own. On the other hand, you or your family might have experienced racism and the wounds still run deep and can be very painful. Recognizing racism is the first step in combating or challenging it, but there are many more ways to stand up to racism.
