Racism is systemic and has led to generations of race-based trauma. Technology has provided an outlet for racism via cybervictimization and bullying.
When people hear the word “trauma,” they often think of one single, dramatic, life-changing event or moment in time. Race-based trauma occurs much more insidiously, on a systemic level, and is experienced through both micro and macroaggressions.
No matter your race or ethnic background, you have a birthright to feel safe, empowered, and respected in every circumstance, at all times.
