Don't Get Weary

Getting a little tired and worn out? We feel your weariness. With daily news about political division, Afghanistan, ongoing discussions about what Critical Race Theory is or isn't, continued debate over "is America racist or not," and more. It's enough to make you want to just give up and do nothing. But friends, that's not how we do this. We continue to hope, dream, vision, and work for a more just and caring society. We are in this together and we appreciate your continued support and engagement. At Together is Better Alliance, we remain committed to the work of dismantling systemic racism. Don't get weary. Positive change is happening. Relationships are being built, books and articles are being read to help us better understand the complexities and challenges of systemic racism, and the work continues.
