When I read the opinion letter “Darien High students say they stand against hate, bigotry after social media post”, I saw hope. I am so proud of the students, I think the bracelet is a brilliant idea.
I started Minority Voice, a support group for minority women in Darien, in July. We listen to each other’s stories about dealing with unconscious bias, microaggression, and sometimes, explicit racism in our town. My heart has been heavy because I could not find a solution — I am just a dumb, local artist, and I do not have power.
