Courageous Conversation Community,
I hope that you, your families, friends and neighbors are all well and safe as we discover what it really means to be a global community. No one questions that COVID-19 has critically interrupted our systems—social, economic, crisis management and others. As we continue to understand and endure, we are reminded of the color, culture and consciousness of the systems and institutions upon which our treatment and recovery depend.
The way in which we greet, engage and associate with one another has been altered dramatically. Our collective effort to stay in and keep each other safe, however, do not include silence on matters critical to the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of our humanity. While the pandemic is colorblind and knows no borders, the responses are neither.
We sincerely hope that you will join the Courageous Conversation which will follow.
Founder and President
