Over the past few days I’ve spent time thinking about what I want to share, from my heart. I want to acknowledge that in this country, we have a long, sordid history of racism, inequity and injustice. What each of us at CHRIS 180 do, and will continue to do, is acknowledge trauma. Racism, inequity and injustice – both the subtle and blatant...
