There was a lot that I was already familiar with, however there was so much more that I was able to glean from the numerous videos, links, charts, and additional resources. Sometimes the weight or sheer reality of a thing does not "hit" you with hearing alone, but the visual disparities of the racial inequities shared hurt to the core. We, Black people, have endured and continue to endure so much, BUT we continue to stand and overcome through it all. I am determined to BE THE CHANGE agent within my community, city, and state! If we work together in truth and transparency, we can realize an end to homelessness and dismantle the system of racism in our lifetime. This course certainly outlines a blueprint to follow! The course is informative, insightful, and empowering! Well done!
