Striving for Social Justice
Colin and Kathleen consider themselves part of the Athens community, as well as part of the global community. One problem continuing to persist in both is systemic racism. In 2020, they embraced the #BlackLivesMatter movement and took part in 'Sparking a Dialogue' to bring attention to the fight for social justice. Hopefully these signs will not be needed in the future, but until then, we want our global and local community to know that we stand with them. We cannot afford to be complacent. We cannot afford to be silent. We cannot afford to be optimistic. We all need to act to bring social justice to our world.
