Some major reminders I took from the conference:
-Young people are profoundly capable of self reflection, going deep, being accountable, and creating concrete actions on issues of racial justice. We have a lot we can learn from them.
-Dr. Rosa Clemente is really dope and has important and powerful things to say. Listen and read her stuff.
-Just talking about race, racism and white privilege makes some people feel seriously threatened...to the point of spending money and time to disrupt the conversation.
- People of Color are extremely resilient, even if we don't always feel like that.
-The realities of the state of our world are deeply angering and saddening....and at the same time hope and love and deep connections, beautiful moments and possibility, and creative resistance can carry far and create change.
- I love this work and I'm pretty good at it and I want to do more of it.
