To all of my clients, colleagues, friends and family: I officially support the Black Lives Matter movement. I am anti-racist and I believe the stories of discrimination I hear from my non-white friends.
White voices have power. I am asking my white friends to join me in reacting against racism in all of its forms. Ask your friend not to use that word, voice your disagreement when family speaks ill of any discriminated group, call yourself out when you notice your own prejudice. And, most of all, listen. Ask questions, listen, and encourage others to listen to the voices of discriminated people. Believe them.
All lives can’t matter until Black Lives Matter
