SPEAK: Silence is Not an Option
We are living in a time where daily we make decisions about whether to act upon our morals and values or surrender them based on fear, bias, indifference, or some other factor. It’s time to reflect on what pushes us one way or another. Many people don’t intervene because they fear judgment or retribution. Being an ally means supporting the “others.” Being an advocate means speaking up when nobody is watching. It means speaking up because it’s the right thing to do. It means acting and not just standing by in the face of judgment or retribution. It means standing up, speaking up, and acting up.
