#DISCOMFORT4CHANGE ANTI-RACISM INITIATIVE
In June of 2020, shortly after the murder of George Floyd, we took a necessary pivot to address racism in America. The #Discomfort4Change anti-racism initiative is meant to highlight some of the racist comments and micro-aggressions we hear on the news, at our dinner tables, and perhaps inside our own minds. #Discomfort4Change is meant to address those statements head on, spark discussion, and provide one of many responses.
Its goal is to provide a toolbox for having effective, uncomfortable, and productive conversations with colleagues, friends, family, and ourselves about race and privilege. Discomfort is difficult but necessary for growth, and we hope that facilitating these uncomfortable conversations will pave the way for lasting change.
We recognize that our responses are limited and we are still learning. To that end, we ask for feedback, comments, questions, and alternate responses. Let’s continue to learn and grow together.
