I stand in solidarity with the current protests against systemic racism, police brutality and social and economic injustice. I share the grief and anger of this moment and recognize that the need for meaningful change is urgent and long overdue.
The reason why we have not faced up to this problem is that we are the problem. It’s not the corporations out there, it’s not the government, it’s us. It’s just like being an alcoholic and being in denial that you’re an alcoholic. We’re in denial that each and every one of us is the problem. Until we face up to that, nothing’s going to happen, hopefully that is starting to change.
Amidst the endless reports of violence suffered by black people in America and the pandemic affecting our communities, we must demand accountability and action from those in power. Our current system must be replaced with one that is just and equitable for all people.

There is hard work to be done. I hope you will join me.
