In Support of Black Lives Matter

This moment and the future of our nation and communities, calls for unity, for listening, for learning and for open mindedness as we seek to understand what communities of color are facing and the assumptions that the broader society is working from.  Our ability to address embedded complex issues requires us to participate in an open and progressive conversation.  We must listen to other perspectives and test our own thinking rather than reinforcing our own beliefs.

 

South Sound Parent to Parent’s reason for being is to support families who have children who society often sees as “less than.”  We work for the rights of our families to have access to services and supports, the right that all families should share. We work for the rights of children with disabilities to have quality education, the right that all children should share.

As such, we stand in support of Black Lives Matter and hope to be part of the conversation and solution in ensuring that families of color no longer feel “less than” based on the color of their skin but are fully supported as part of our community. It is time to listen, learn, support, and speak out on behalf of all families of color because Black Lives Matter.
