ONE STEP. ONE LOVE.
This is me sharing my messy personal journey on the road to racial justice, equity and unity. After becoming overwhelmed, I decided to take one action a day for 30 days. I'm sharing my steps with you.
I am not an expert. This page is intended to be a beginning - a starting point for white people working to become aware of the internal work that must be done before real change can happen.
There are resource guides below for your continued work, organized by Black educators in the field. Join me in using them and transforming these first 30 days into a lifelong spiritual commitment of revolutionary love.
With love, Mary xo
