In these unsettling times it becomes clear that we need to take a stand for what is right and stand together for a better tomorrow for all of us. It feels so overwhelming to think about “what I can do to fix the problems in the world?”. Yet it really is simple and starts with each of us.
Growing up I was taught that all people, no matter their color or gender, should be treated with dignity and respect as a fellow human being. This is so simple and yet it has become hard to practice because society tells us this is not true. It happens in small ways and in huge tragic ways. Each of us can address small ways and as those add up the huge tragic inequities will be intolerable.
Here are some simple ways we can all take a stand for what is right and stand with those who are put down, shutdown or let down by those around them. These ideas apply to daily life and work.
5 Ways you can make a difference:
Inequality, injustice show up when there is favoritism, privilege and preferential treatment that is based on anything other than the individual's knowledge, skills or performance.
There are good people in all colors, jobs, and walks of life. In these same groups there are those who take advantage of others, believe their rights supersede other’s rights, and are willing to use force to get their way.
It’s time we all take a stand for what is right and work to erase inequality in all it's forms. Please take a stand for those who need your voice.
