Embracing Discomfort

As a white male in America I experience privileges, opportunities and outcomes that people of color, women, and others do not. My identities, whether chosen, assumed, assigned or inherited, have facilitated a lifetime of comforts that have eluded others simply because of their identities.

I am a person who is committed to justice for everyone, everywhere, all of the time. Through my life experience, I have learned it is my responsibility to take personal action as well as advocate grandiose social change.

In the case of racial equity, I have learned that personal action for white people like me requires discomfort. My white privilege has made my life relatively easy, and because of that I have a lot of discomfort to go through!

My life has given me a lot of ways to get outside of my comfort zone, and the more I actively embrace discomfort and the more justice I can build in the world.
