Imagine twenty years from now – when our kids will look back and remember the Summer of 2020.
What they will remember is – through all the pain and hardship and death – they did something good. They had a hand in changing the world for the better.
This could be the summer that changes everything.
By September 2020, your kids will be able to answer with pride:
- Who are we? What is my racial identity?
- How do I use my feelings about racial injustice to help?
- What is my role in fighting racism?
- How can I make anti-racism a part of my everyday life?
Put it in your calendar:
*We’ve got a packed calendar of events, but families who are overextended, managing disabilities, and who can’t make the action dates are welcome to participate at a slower pace. Adjust your schedule as needed – but for non-Black families of color & white families, do the work and block off some time in your calendar.
Find out how the Black Lives Matter movement started (hint: with a love letter), learn how to talk about your family’s racial identity and role in anti-racism, and take the first step in showing up in solidarity for families impacted by anti-Blackness.
Follow & post your own updates on social media with the hashtag #LoveLetters4BlackLives.
