This is so important:
- for our own mental health,
- for demonstrating our visible stance against injustice and racism, and
- for keeping our communities connected so that our people don’t fall through the cracks.
2020 has tested our mettle – there has been so much to fight for, so much to fight against, so much struggle against the invisible AND against acts to disenfranchise that are in plain sight. It’s time to take stock, to gather and learn from one another in virtual rooms, to listen, and to remember why we volunteer, why we are civically engaged, why community matters, and hear the voices of our peers!
