Recent events in America have exposed long-standing systemic discrimination. This moment in history calls us to weave the personal with the political, the social with the psychological, the individual with the collective.
Have you ever... Experienced some type of discrimination? Felt like, or made someone feel like, an unwanted guest? Witnessed or participated in an act of racism? Stood silent or conversely, took action in the face of an unjust act? Thought of yourself as a privileged person, enjoying some right or advantage that certain groups of people don't? Imagined a future without discrimination, inequality, and racism?
