This week we have the opportunity to hear from Jamie as she reflects on 2020 and more specifically on the last few weeks.
2020 has been an overwhelming year, first with the pandemic, and now with the murder of George Floyd. In all the chaos and uncertainty, I believe truth is being exposed.
On Monday, May 25th, George Floyd was murdered. And since Tuesday afternoon, Urban Homeworks staff and community has been in collective grief, anger and despair. We apologize for our silence. Our silence was not out of confusion or lack of need for justice or disinterest in getting ourselves involved or taking a stance. Our silence has been reflective of a deep pain and exhaustion from the continuous disregard for Black lives by police, and the continuous apathy and silence by too many of our white-bodied brothers and sisters.
