Earn the Trust by Showing Up. Every Day.

 Hi Friends!

Happy Black History Month! I hope all of you will take the content you may have seen this month and find ways to apply it every single month going forward. Black History is American (and World) History. Here’s a great article by N’dea Yancey-Bragg called “Why is Black History Month in February? How do you celebrate? Everything you need to know.” (USA Today, 2/1/21)

This month, we had two great discussion events centered around (small) actions we can take and supporting each other in our anti-racist work. We’d love to hold more, ideally on a regular basis. More to come!

I would like to highlight an upcoming screening of “Pushout” being hosted by the Arlington Branch of the NAACP’s Education Committee on March 8.

I would also like to call particular attention to Angie Franklin’s “Ghosted by Allies: Why BIPOC Still Can’t Trust White People With Social Justice” (The Bold Italic, 2/4/21). Friends, this is where so much of the self-work of white people must be. White people have to choose this work, every day, over and over, no matter what. BIPOC do not get to choose — white supremacy and systemic racism choose for them.

The Work Continues

 Hi Friends,

I’m inviting each of you to join us for a virtual supportive conversation with group members called “Going Together”. We’re holding the event during two different dates — February 10 and February 17. Please feel free to come to one or both. We look forward to seeing you there. If this goes well, we’ll consider hosting more to support your anti-racism work.

I’m also excited to announce that I’m participating in Arlington For Justice’s “Let’s Talk” series on February 2. Please tune in on Facebook live and ask questions.

I’m thinking differently about how I categorize the resources I share with all of you, and that translates to how we think about the work we are doing to address injustices in our communities. One of my current touchstones is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, which clarifies the priorities of human survival and ability to thrive. The baseline includes food and shelter, followed by safety, followed by love and belonging.

- I am consistently distressed at our society’s dependence upon charity and volunteers to meet the baseline needs of our community members who are hungry and/or without shelter. While there are governmental programs that attempt to address these needs, they are wholly inadequate. What is it about our society that we relegate people who are suffering from basic survival needs to a safety net full of holes and gaps in coverage?

- I am more and more motivated to understand human belonging and what happens when members of our communities are rejected or cast out of society and belonging. Is this a factor in what drives people to hate and violence? And if so, what are we doing as individuals and as a society to change the way we react to inappropriate behavior? This is one of the huge differences between our current criminal system and restorative justice, for example. But this also applies to our personal relationships — what are we each doing to call people in, to facilitate their progress along the continuum from actively racist to actively anti-racist?

- I am also personally aware of my own tendencies towards white saviorism, something I work every day to unlearn, but that you might see come across sometimes in my updates and my focus on our most vulnerable community members. Know that my hope is not for more feel-good bandaid efforts, however, but that my hope is for systemic change that addresses the root causes of suffering so that the charitable and volunteer work is no longer relied upon for survival.

I hope all of you have had the chance to breathe a little more deeply since January 20. While it is good and right to celebrate that milestone, it is also good and right to remember that the work continues. Very little has truly changed about the challenges that still face us. Our new national leadership will not be able to accomplish its goals without our continued advocacy and activism propelling them forward. Do not be too quick to forget the realities we have just left behind — they will not remain in the past for they are following us, waiting for another chance to challenge our resolve. We must not rest; we must show that our vision for the future is stronger than theirs, because it includes all of us.

Monica Hesse writes “Inauguration Day was a milestone, but it’s not the destination” (Washington Post, 1/20/21). The only way to go is forward.

- The Black Heritage Museum of Arlington, Virginia has relocated to 2611 Columbia Pike. They will be reopening to the public soon! They expressed appreciation to the Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization (CPRO) for their assistance in their unexpected, last minute relocation.
- APS is looking for more members for the Advisory Council on Teaching & Learning (ACTL) and the Budget Advisory Council (BAC). You can find out more here (including how to apply). This is a good way to add more anti-racist voices to the groups who advise our Superintendent and the School Board.
- A reminder that Arlington County is engaged in its Housing Arlington: Affordable Housing Master Plan Review process. They are holding listening tour meetings with each zip code as well as accepting online feedback.
- Rock Spring UCC and Calloway Methodist UMC created “Courageous Conversations for our Community: How to Be an Anti-Racist in Arlington” (PDF, January 2021)
- Emma Rubin at The COVID Tracking Project created this graphic, comparing “Highest Racial Disparities in Case Fatality Rates” as of October 21, 2020, which includes Arlington, VA compared nationally and to other parts of the country. Thanks to the Arlington chapter of the NAACP for sharing this.
