How To Be An Ally...

Here at OH.SO, we stand in solidarity with the 

Black community in the fight against racism and systemic injustice. 

 

We must unite and stand for inclusion. It is our collective responsibility to be part of the solution. Black voices deserve to be heard.

 

We are listening.

We are learning.

We will continue to fight this fight.
