Ahmaud Arbery.
Breonna Taylor.
George Floyd.
Christian Cooper.

We need to know their names. We need to understand their stories. We need to acknowledge the tragic events that brought them to the forefront are not new; they are simply the latest examples that illustrate the individual bias, systemic racism, and instances of brutality that remain all too common.

Far too often, the burden of seeking equality rests on the shoulders of those most marginalized. This simply won’t work. The change we need is broad and deep and requires us all to be active—as friends and colleagues, and as allies and advocates.

We can step up, step forward, and help create the world in which we want to live. One conversation at a time. One action at a time.
