A BIT ABOUT US

We are not experts. We, like many around the world, watched what happened to George Floyd in Minneapolis with horror and outrage and felt we had to do something. We know that Floyd's murder was not an isolated incident but is built on centuries of systemic racism. We know that racism is not confined to Minnesota or to the US; it is pervasive and widespread and exists in the UK and in Scotland. We are also guided by the Talmudic exhortation that says, "Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”

This is our attempt to walk humbly into the work and do what we can to attend to the world's grief. We are a white, bi-national (US & UK) family who recently moved from the US (where we lived in Minneapolis and then the San Francisco Bay Area) to the Oban area in the northwest of Scotland. We know we have much to learn, and many people to learn from, and invite everyone who feels so moved to join us in the journey. Please contact us at 846Solidarity@gmail.com.
