Last month, I wrote this blog for EduMatch Publishing, the publishing company that I work as Logistics Manager and whom published my book, the I’m Sorry Story.

Because this is such a sensitive, yet relevant piece, I had help from a few friends in the editing and revising. Thank you to Dan Tricarico who wrote The Zen Teacher and Sanctuaries, my Boss/CEO/Founder of EduMatch Publishing, Dr. Sarah Thomas, friends and fellow authors, Dr. Lynell Powell and Dene Gainey (who will also be a Dr in the future).

As you read this post, I pray it helps you navigate through becoming an anti-racist human, educator, parent, etc. We all have a lot of work ahead of us and we need to work together to bring about the change that is necessary for true equality for all people in our amazing country.

This image created by @made_by_maddd sums up many great points!
