What barriers exist in your life to increasing your involvement?

the focus towards my own family. not sure i feel a impactful method has been discovered to effectively resolve/improve the issues. picketing is heard because it becomes a riot (negative publicity), peaceful protest don’t get acknowledged (not publicized)

What role do you think the government should play in race relations?

showing acceptance. And that the basic value of human life matters. And showing that all voices matter. Showing kindness to one another.

When you hear black lives matter, what does that mean to you?

it’s a movement to equality for all, however being that the slogan is ‘black lives matter’ also creates a lot of controversy on whether it truly is for equality for all, or just for ‘black lives’. anymore i feel this slogan has become a reminder that we simply cannot get along or agree to anything. I think it needs refreshed.

Sustainable development is the pathway to the future we want for all. It offers a framework to generate economic growth, achieve social justice, exercise environmental stewardship and strengthen governance.
