DISCRIMINATION

INCLUSION & RESPECT
I encourage others—through their own actions and those they teach their children—to do the same: rid the world of hate and bigotry.
EQUALITY & HUMAN RIGHTS
When one thinks of women who pushed the boundaries of civil rights, one seminal figure is rarely mentioned. Her name was Marian Anderson.
EQUALITY & HUMAN RIGHTS
Imagine the condition of the world today if that principle had been universally adhered to when it was written. That would be a world worth celebrating.
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE

COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
People so often show their true colors during challenging times and, for most people, that means finding ways to succeed in spite of any and all barriers. There are countless examples of selfless acts around the world over the course of this challenging, unforgettable year. Thankfully only a small minority of people actually wish ill on others.

TOLERANCE
Interestingly, the two “discriminations”—racial and religious—have historical intersections in this land of the free. They stem from the same root, after all, the root called bigotry.
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
It was one of those moments in which every single second seems to last a painful eternity.
