Based on the information in the continuum, I would consider myself somewhere between active and advocate. I'm educating myself and trying to have conversations with others. I wouldn't say I was well informed. But I am actively choosing to not be ignorant and keep my mind open. It's not about me, so I try to not get wrapped up in the guilt and shame. But, whatI do with my privilege does matter. It is not ok to sit this one out. There are so many ways people can plug in to the forward momentum of BLM. I aim to be inclusive in my work and environment. Covid makes that an obstacle of sorts. I don't really care for the word Ally* and i don't use it for myself. I don't want a badge of honor/ally. Thats not the point of all of this. But I am committed. I feel the rage and disgust towards our systems of oppression. I don't feel comfortable with inaction. So, I act in the ways that I can, when I can.
