“I love my new t-shirt. It’s blue, with blue imprint. It’s long-sleeved, yet quite cool even on a warm day. So, it’s new, blue, long-sleeved and comfy, but the thing I like best is the connection to We Belong Here: The Takoma Par Equity Walk and I love the quote on the front:

‘For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it, if only we’re brave enough to be it.’ 

Last October, We Belong Here, an interactive experience focused on equity, was launched and then relaunched in April. This project was conceived as a safe place to talk about difficult issues. So many Takoma Park residents have engaged with the activity to explore their feelings about belonging, equity, race, gender, disability and more. Taking the time to talk and listen to others can be the first step toward understanding, empathy and action. We want to hear from you.

You can act now, by heading over to experience We Belong Here and by filling out the survey about your experience.  Once you submit the survey, we will send you a new, blue, long-sleeved comfy t-shirt with Amanda Gorman’s call to action imprinted on the front. And you can direct people to We Belong Here with the QR code on the back.

You will love your new t-shirt, and you will feel empowered by your experience, I promise.”
