“What we need is less false education. What we need is fewer rules, fewer police and more good teachers. We think that hatred signifies strength, that punishment is love. We just need to care….. People are not good to each other. People are just not good to each other.”
Across the world, people are uniting to demand justice and force a reckoning with the racist histories of the US and so many other countries. I see young people, my children included, peacefully marching for change in the streets, from my home city of New York all the way to my home country of Germany, and I am proud to stand by them and work peacefully together to build a better and a more just world with real equality of opportunity for education, health care, housing, and economic success for everyone.
