What can we do?

20 Nov

In the aftermath of Paris (and Beirut) – any tragic event –  many of us ask ourselves what we can do.
These situations are so big and so overwhelming that we often also think big – and get overwhelmed.

But change can happen in small and meaningful ways. Here are a few things we can all do every day to make a difference:

Recognize your biases.
Question your assumptions.
Really see people instead of stereotypes.
Ask questions and get the facts.
Be a critical consumer of the media.
Get to know people who are not “like you”.
Expand your awareness and your lens.

Be an ally – speak up and step in when someone is being treated unfairly because of who they are.

The world needs more love.

See more.
