As Black History Month draws to an end, we remind ourselves that the work of racial justice continues. The road to equality and justice is a long one and requires constant and consistent effort, even after February.
We are updating and reposting our #SkritterChineseTips post from last summer to discuss the words and phrases related to racial and criminal justice. We are a group of educators and programmers in a small startup and we hope to contribute by sharing what we know with the language we love and the creative work we do. Study the Skritter deck here.
