Trying to Navigate, Willing to Fight

Donna Scott,
Seattle, WA.

I’m passionate about social justice, but I sense the amount of space that I take up, as a white person. I noticed race early on (I’m thinking I noticed it in Kindergarten, I was one of two white kids at my school of ~300) and I’ve been trying my best to learn. I feel my narrative isn’t important in this fight, but I want to speak up when I see an injustice. I’m never certain when speaking up will be speaking over voices of color or when I’m taking up room in spaces of color.
