"Cultivating #stuvoice involves constant interrogation of own beliefs & flexibility. Can't unleash them then stand & deliver #Educolor

The situation in Michigan is frightening. We've already seen plenty of comparisons between the Flint water situation and the Detroit school situation, and the administrators of both systems have been one and the same. The insidious nature of the water situation and the educational situation should make for less moments of charity and more moments for revolt and activism.

In prior years, educators on social media wouldn't respond, either for fear of retribution or out of simple disinterest. Nowadays, a few more chats have been responsive to their local situations. That's the whole point of EduColor. On the surface level, we've activated on issues of race and education everywhere from the classroom to the White House and everywhere in between. On a deeper level, we've organized around empathy and inclusiveness for everyone's individual and collective humanity.

In other words, this is the love movement.

In this edition, we're highlighting some of the sharpest writing from the last month. Our actionables are simple: support, amplify, and resist. We support people in their movement towards cultural competence, amplify those who do this work, and resist via anti-racist practices. We won't compromise ourselves in this vision for full rights for all. We need this change now.

We're not watered down, so we're dying of thirst.
