WHITE SPEAK

WHITE SPEAK seeks to help the non-Black community understand what's really going on with the #BlackLivesMatter movement--inspiring anti-racism, social and systemic change by answering all of the burning questions about what has led us to where we are today--and what folks can do to help and support--and how only together will we ever be able to dismantle the racial structures and barriers that are inherent to our systems and institutions. We can't let this moment pass without making real change--and we're going to need your help do it.
