Hope + Outrage

From Tanesha Peeples

Awesome photo of Tanesha Peeples.I want to start a movement where people of color feel compelled and empowered to advocate for better education.

So, every week I’m sharing some Hope and Outrage right here. The OUTRAGE gets people to give a damn. The HOPE is what drives us and turns our momentary activism into sustained advocacy.

All I ask is that you take a moment to share it out so we can get others to give a damn, too. I’m not doing this for my health. I’m not writing this to be famous. I’m doing this because our youth need all of us in this fight.
