    I have been listening to more training. Our bias underlye so much of what we think. I love learning more about how to be a good listener.

    What great resources for learning and understanding more about what we might not know. Spearheaded by our oldest daughter, Allison, my little family has a Zoom call every few weeks to talk about racism. We’ve gone about it in different ways, but right now, we’re reading the same book, Ihram Kendi’s “How to Be An Antiracist” and discussing a few chapters at a time. Allison also started a non-profit called The Level Up Project. The organization runs workshops (via Zoom) teaching practical skills, promoting accessibility, and donating profits to organizations that help the underserved. They have a new series of workshops launching in April. For more info, here is a link to the website: https://www.thelevelupproject.org
