Communication

Be Honest with Yourself.

  • Acknowledge the systemic racism and your own privilege. This conversation has to begin within.

  • “White privilege exists as a direct result of both historic and enduring racism, biases, and practices     designed to oppress people of color.”

  • If you don’t understand or are confused in any way, do intense research and/or reach out to an advocate to help you understand.

Spark Conversations and Create Dialogue.

  • Firstly, know that this is not a political issue, but rather an issue of humanity and racial injustice.

  • Starting conversations on racism can be difficult when you haven't done it before. Make sure you are in a safe environment before talking with people, but do not be fearful of their response. Every situation is different, but difficult conversations are the most powerful ones. A single conversation with someone can plant a seed and influence a vote, ultimately saving a life. 

  • Start with your family and friends - the people who love and care for you the most. Be respectful of their opinions, and refrain from attacking them. It can be difficult, but it is necessary.
