“I felt privileged to be a part of something so empowering, uplifting and validating, not just for our students, but for myself… so many students energetically leaned in (despite it being such a sensitive topic), eager to listen and speak up, and showing willingness to advocate for others.”– Kaori Urayama, Families Organizing for Racial Justice
