Not Everyone Needs to be an Activist

NILES, Ohio – Justice reform advocate Kevin Richardson spoke to about 100 professionals from a broad spectrum gathered for Unmute the Uncomfortable – a professional development symposium on racial justice, mental health awareness and suicide prevention Friday.

Richardson reminds people that not everyone needs to be an activist.

“You can be active in your own communities,” he said. “Sometimes that starts with having a community meeting and letting other people know how it is to be in my shoes. Society might not know how it is, but they could tap into my world and see how it is. Then, maybe we can help each other out. It’s little steps, one after another.”
