"Looking back, it’s easier to see the moments that were crystallizing for me.... One friend asked me what I was going to do, and I said, 'I don’t know, but I know I want to make a difference.'"
"I don’t understand why race is so complicated... But I know that we don’t learn unless we ask questions and have conversations. That is what opens people’s minds — having an encounter and learning from each other."
"All of us were on this pilgrimage to advocate for positive social change... and in a way it became a touchstone for making future commitments geared toward finding ways that I could make a difference in my community."
"I think what we are trying to do here is change the historical memory of our community, and to do that we need everyone involved -- not just those for whom racial justice is the central focus of their daily work." -- Abigail Schneider
