This has been a difficult year for all of us. But I take some comfort in knowing that our work at Densho has a meaningful, tangible impact during a time when many are struggling.
“I always know a Densho workshop will be good, but this was exceptional…. I so appreciate your willingness to take a stand, to honor your own community while standing as allies for other communities, for tying it all together, and for making effective and fully usable classroom materials all in one two-hour workshop.”
One of the central pieces of this teach-in encourages participants to think about what action looks like for them, and how each of us can play a role, big or small, in making the change we want to see in the world. I’m grateful that Densho can contribute to the vital work that educators, artists, journalists, and so many others do every day. And I want to thank our community for supporting us during these trying times and ensuring that we can keep doing this work.
I wish you a happy holiday season, and hope to see you in 2021!
