Perhaps you're concerned like me - it seems like everyday, there's something in the news about division in our country. Racial slurs, white supremacy propaganda, Nazi symbolism, xenophobic and homophobic hatred, and the list goes on. Words are painful enough, but shootings? I just don’t get it. Perhaps you're like me and you see this on the news and you want to do something about it, to help, but you don’t know how. You know you’re not the problem, but you want to be a part of the solution.
I am a teenager and I know I want to be part of the change. I wish there was a way to get people from different backgrounds in one room to talk about the lens through which we look through in life. Think about it, we don’t have these conversations, we don't ask because we are afraid of offending or bringing up a bad time in history... we don’t even talk to our closest friends about it. I wish we could have a safe place to foster open communication, to lead to greater understanding, to lead to a ripple in the ocean. I designed a workshop for my Girl Scouts Gold Award project intended to be that safe place to get the conversations going. Will you join me?
