In recent weeks the horrifying, brutal deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have sparked a long-overdue global recognition of racial injustice for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).
I have been listening, educating myself, and grappling with the searing pain and righteous demands for social and moral justice from the Black Lives Matter movement. I’m calling on you to help me amplify and support the resources and efforts to break free from the legacy of systemic racism and unequal institutional power that is woven into our country.
Love to All, Gillian
