Voices That Matter

Voices That Matter

The ASBA “Voices That Matter Campaign” was created to honor voices, emotions and experiences on racial injustice in the United States.
ASBA condemns racism and police brutality against black people. Along with our community, we mourn the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the endless list of black lives lost as a direct result of racism, white supremacy, and systemic oppression.
Black, brown and other underrepresented voices in our schools must be amplified. This campaign is one opportunity to do this and help our staff and members express themselves and heal through these difficult times.

As a child and teenager in the 60s and 70s, I personally fought against social injustice and civil rights. It’s interesting that I learned more about this (one day to be history) in school in the 70s than our young people learn today.

Maybe if ALL children are taught about slavery, the Holocaust and the Civil Rights Movement, there will be a better understanding of the injustice in our history, that should have brought us to today and the understanding that there is still more to do.

The fight is not over…how sad.
