We can better support the black community.

I don’t know exactly what to say or how to say it without making it “about me”. So I will just definitively state that I fully support the movement to end racial injustice. Black Lives Matter to me. Whatever changes I make within myself and how I communicate these to other people will be “behind the scenes” for now. It is not my turn to speak. So I will share…

(Note: I will be adding to this list daily, so please comment here / email or message me / text me … I want to lean in and educate myself, while hopefully inspiring others to do the same.)
