Make It Routine

 


It's time to change the Routine.

It’s time to put in the work. Let’s develop a new Routine to create a better society. A society rooted in love and acceptance, regardless of race or beliefs. Let’s be brave. Join us as we challenge the norm and stand alongside the oppressed. Our voices will be heard and our impact will be felt. We must be better. We will be better.

Below are ways to listen, learn and change the Routine.
