I think I am somewhere between aware and active, and have gone through periods of one or the other over the last few years. I'd like to be an advocate. I have done trainings, read books, done my own research and learning about racism, had challenging conversations with people of color, sought out people of color to work with and learn from (and paid them, not seeking it for free), and participated in local protests and demonstrations. I also work to teach my white son about racism. But I feel I could be more involved in politics and in the community, as opposed to just my small personal circle.
