listen, learn, act.

If George Floyd looked like me, he'd still be alive today. That is sickening and wrong. Yesterday in Worcester, our community came together, united in peaceful protest, to demand an end to systemic racism in our country.

Yes, we need justice.

Yes, we need accountability.

But if we stop short and end our work there, we'll be right back where we started shortly after the dust settles.

We need to change the broken system that allowed this to happen in the first place. We must channel our anger and outrage into action and change. All of us, but especially those of us who benefit from racism and oppression, need to look deep down and ask what more we can do to listen, learn, and act.
