Donor Newsletter – June 2020
Dear Choose Love Movement Donor Family,
- NURTURING = LISTEN. We must nurture these wounds by listening to the stories of people who have experienced racism first hand. In order to truly understand the problems in the world, we must be informed. Listen to those protesting injustices, and have empathy for their struggle.
- HEALING = REFLECT. After listening and educating ourselves, reflect on this knowledge. Through understanding and compassion, healing can begin. Be mindful of our privilege, ability to enact change, and take personal responsibility to be part of the solution. Look inward and see what we can do to change our thoughts, home, and community for the better, every day. Change starts from the inside, out, with commitment and effort.
- LOVE = ACT. Show love through action. Show kindness and caring to every person you encounter because the world will only change if we all take responsibility and do something about it. Start a dialogue with family, friends and local officials about race and inequality to ensure what has happened in the past does not repeat itself. Join the Choose Love Movement and become an advocate for SEL in schools to help teach our future generations these essential life skills. Hate is taught, and so is love.
