Protests

I’ve been reading about protests happening all over the city, people getting arrested in Times Square, actions in Harlem… If you come across anything that you think some of us might like to participate in, please share it (I’m not on Twitter, which is where I imagine a lot of announcements happen…). Here are a couple I’ve come across…

    Shishi Rose coordinated a protest for children.

    She points out, “If children of color can grow up in a system and experience racism then no, your white child is not too young to learn about racism and help fight against it.”

    My daughter doesn’t understand words yet, but I’m trying to imagine how I will talk to her about this violence, this injustice, these protests. A protest designed for children seems a good place to start. A community driven call to stand up and speak out.
    Perhaps social injustice is something parents and children truly need help from their communities to discuss, to question, to fight.
