Exposure, education, compassion, and empathy

I've been thinking about this topic for the last few days and how to have conversations around it in our community. I feel a deep sense of wanting to have conversations around this, to ask questions, to listen, but I feel unsure of how to do it. If I'm being honest, I'm really afraid to do it wrong and be part of the problem.

I feel the need to read and learn a little more before I address it though, because I don't want to just add more noise or copied and pasted posts, but real thought and conversation. I also don't want to sit back and do nothing because I'm waiting to do it "right".

I saw this video shared today and it really resonated with me. I’m grateful for the grace he offers in answering these questions and I’m looking forward to his future posts.

I just downloaded "White Fragility" by Robin DiAngelo and have a few others on my list. I am guilty as many of us are of not realizing how much I don't know about what I don't know, and I thought I was pretty aware. I want to listen, I want to learn, I want to help others do the same.
