I’m a Traitor to the Community

Samantha Foote,
USA

I live a conservative state and a conservative community. I teach at a local high school. Because I choose to discuss social issues in my classroom and welcome LGBTQIA+ and POC narratives, I’m seen as a traitor and a danger to the community. I’m tired of being attacked for showing empathy and love for the oppressed. I want to understand my fellow man better. I don’t want to be a martyr.
