When we say education is at the heart of everything we do, it means that we believe there is always more learning to be done.
When we say that we are community-driven, it means that everyone matters.
When we say that we believe in finding new voices, it means that we want to amplify those voices, not speak for them.
There is a lesson being taught right now about justice and hope and resilience. We are being shown, like we have been shown so many times before because we still have not acted, that there are people in our community who are treated like they don’t matter.
Listen, and learn. Find the voices that need to be heard and help them be heard. Look critically at everything you have ever assumed was necessary in our society. Make art, of course. But art is an inspirational tool; it falls short without action. We love you all. Black Lives Matter.
