8. Anti-racism:
-More SOCC/NSU collaborations. More dialogue between coordinators.
-Is there impetus for people to participate themselves

–we can’t pin down the issue
–but nor can people who feel uncomfortable
–build bridges before we notice that they are missing
–physical distance between us and other advocacy groups creates more impetus for us to relationship build

-All spaces have race-related issues
-Some of these issues might not have solutions
-Everywhere has a race issue
-People of color have to be part of the solution even though it is hard

-Other perspectives: maybe the space is “white in a way that is mindful”

9. Edits: see Kay’s doc
