Quotes
"It's not just about what you can do. You can't do this alone. It's gonna take people to come alongside. So you don't have to break your back trying to fight this forever."

"We are all part of one community. As long as we keep breaking us down into 'this community' and 'that community,' we all become 'other' to each other."

"What affects them also affects us. It's a reciprocal thing, and we have to act accordingly."

"Proximity is often the answer. Who are you inviting into your home? Who are you going to school with?"

"We're becoming much more multi-religious, diverse, and that sense of compassion and empathy grows when you're living life with others who may experience life in a different way."

"Are you doing what's best for kids each day? If you can answer that affirmatively, you can rest easy knowing you're making a difference."

"Kindness is willingness to serve others, be compassionate, and have empathy without expecting anything in return."

"Strength looks different in different ways. Taking on a mission with purpose and determination is a form of strength."

"Show up in support of inclusive education, even when there is no hate on the other side. It's about building a community that values every voice."

"Every student should feel seen, heard, valued, and have access to a great school experience. That's the essence of creating equitable learning environments."
