I speak up at great cost to my safety and that of my family, but I have so much more to lose if I don’t speak up, and if I don’t help to lift up the voices of those who have felt powerless for so long. There are many amazing people of color doing this work, and I have a lot to learn from them as well. But I sleep well at night knowing that my voice, no matter how insignificant or enraging it may seem to some, has its place in the choir.
