Do you doubt that antiracism, allyship, and inclusion are relevant? Do you find yourself still wondering if people can shed their racist beliefs? Then you’ve already forgotten about the Chauvin guilty verdict in the murder of George Floyd and the recent McMichaels and Bryan trial guilty verdicts for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.

While we take no credit for those verdicts, rest assured that for those verdicts to have been rendered—especially in the southern state of Georgia with its storied history with the Confederacy—the hearts and minds of at least twelve citizens in both jurisdictions believed that Mr. Floyd’s life and Mr. Arbery’s life as Black men were of value.

This has not always been the case.

See the murders of Breonna Taylor, Philando Castille, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and far too many others.

Remember what Dr. King said about the arc of the moral universe: it is long but bends toward justice. We are witnesses to its bending. We’ve come too far to stop now.

We at Our Human Family and OHF Weekly believe that people can shed their racist beliefs:

  1. when they want to change
  2. when they know change is possible
  3. and when they know how to change

Tuesday, November 30, join #GivingTuesday’s global generosity movement and donate to the work of Our Human Family (a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization) on racial equity, allyship, and inclusion with a tax-deductible donation. Or you can give now

Please give. No gift is too small. Whether you donate $5 or $500, every little bit helps. We have many more goals to accomplish in the coming year, including launching our in-person allyship workshop.

Thank you for your continued support.

Love one another.
