Fight, And Know Who You Are Fighting For
"I don't get policial online."
"I don't want to offend any customers."
"It's not my place to say anything."
There is concern from small business owners on what they should and should not say publically about politics and the current state of the world. I get it. I really do. You don't want to lose out on money coming in your door. Trust me. That fear is real. But the fear of being complicit is far scarier to me. Silence is acceptance. So I get loud. And I inform. And I debate. And I refuse to stand down.
I want the same for you. To not be scared because this is not the time to sit idly by. Most importantly, I want you to know who you are fighting for. The people of color. Trans people. Muslim people. Disabled people. Non-binary people. All the marginalized groups that you yourself may not fit in. Educate yourself about them. Fight for them. Because only when they have equal rights, will we all have equal rights.
