Black History Month 2021 found us in a unique place as a nation, and city. Our racial equity challenges are being seen in high relief and experienced with palpable grief. We know these challenges are not new. But each new day presents the opportunity to decide who we will be in response to, and in the face of, racial inequity.
That’s what makes the difference: who we choose to be and what we choose to do in times like these. Not just what we say in the heat of the day. At Trinity Boston Connects, we choose to remain anchored in our healing response to the traumatic impact of systemic racism on youth of color and the adults who serve them. We also choose hope: for our city, its youth, and their future.
