Only recently have my eyes opened

Fay Gilder,
United Kingdom

We never had conversations about race in my family. I grew up in a multiracial environment but each other’s experiences were not questioned or asked for. Then I met an activist, a race champion, who showed me my blindness. I read as much as I can. I use curiosity to ask others about their lived experience and I talk about white privilege with my own family so they will not be as blind as I was. I use my new insights to champion anti-racism and allyship in all my environments- work and home, friends and colleagues. I recognize I have but scratched the surface but hope that in some way I can make a difference.
