We hope you enjoyed the opportunity to watch the inauguration on Wednesday. We were blown away by the Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman's speech. Her voice rang clear in a call for both unity and the need to have difficult, real conversations with our fellow Americans. We would invite you to:
Watch her passionate, articulate speech, "The Hill We Climb," if you haven't already. This could be a great opportunity to watch it with your older children, as appropriate.
Learn more about her work and history. As we approach Black History Month, take the opportunity to celebrate modern, young leaders of color who are inspiring change in this world.
In solidarity, with hope for a brighter future,
Thacher Diversity Committee
