Black Lives Matter
Get Educated Check out this continually evolving Anti-racism resource list, this anti-racist starter kit or this list compiled by members of our OC. Learn terms , the stories and history of protests and say their names . Understand why this Friday’s nationally recognized holiday of Juneteenth is so important.
Have the Hard Conversations: unpacking white privilege can feel hard, but “white feelings should never be held in higher regard than black lives” ( Rachel Cargle ). Be the one in your circles to call out for change, have those difficult conversations, organize commitment from your circle(s) no matter how small and be ready to call folks in when you hear something racist, whether it’s in your communities or at COMEGA.
As our vision states, it is our hope that each of us who learn are “... empowered to bring his newly found awareness, commitments, and passions back to his relationships and to his community.”
