As a white person and a therapist, I have been aware of the problem of racial inequality for years and I have not always been sure how to address it, other than to use my voice to speak up and speak out. The whole damn system needs to change, I know that for sure. And while we wait for that (too slow) change to happen, Black people are hurting right now.
I recently learned about Rachel Cargle's Loveland Foundation, which raises funds to help Black women and girls get therapy - something that I know can be so beneficial in healing from trauma. I want to amplify their work using my voice on social media. As the host of Therapy Chat Podcast, I have a platform that reaches many people and I am going to use it how I can to help others.
Please make a contribution if you can, or share a campaign to help raise awareness about what they are doing. I am starting by making a $500 monthly recurring donation for all of 2020, and after that I will see if I can do more. I hope you will consider what you can do. All white people benefit from systemic inequality and the structures that support white supremacy, and this is a small way I can help to counter that.
What will you do to be part of the solution?
