Black Lives Matter

Posted by:

Black Lives Matter. 
I strongly condemn all forms of racism and all forms of racial injustice. I grieve for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the countless other black Americans who have been murdered or injured through brutality, racist actions and behaviors. 
The recent tragic events, combined with the devastation of the coronavirus on communities of color, has exposed yet again the stark injustice people of color constantly face in our country.  The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have re-awakened the urgent need for systemic change.  I believe that as a nation, we are obligated to affect change and promote a just society for all people. We are obligated to fight injustice and work harder to protect those who are chronically disenfranchised and at risk. 
In my counseling practice, I want my students to know that I support you equally and I believe that no matter your race or orientation, you are valued and supported.  I believe in every one of you.  
Students, you always impress me with your courage, passion, determination and can-do attitudes, especially now.  During this challenging time in history, you are working diligently to help your communities, educate others and yourselves, and promote equity.  A shout out to one of my current students, Kavi.  Kavi has created a webpage, www.YouthofChange.com, where you can find numerous resources on Black Lives Matter, including books, videos, and movies.  
I encourage all of us to keep educating ourselves about the systemic injustice that plagues this country and steadfastly work together to create a more just and equitable society. 

Sincerely,

Christine Luksza-Paravicini and My Best College Plan Counseling
