This is the Time for Solidarity, Equity, and Justice

Open Hearts On Tour stands in support of the Black Lives Matter demonstrations throughout our country and the world.

The catalyst for these protests was the death, while in police custody, of George Floyd — layered upon decades and centuries of violence, abuse, and inequities that Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and LGBTQ people have experienced — at the hands of police, authorities, and the systems that govern and serve our societies.

Not everyone can physically march. However, each one of us has a critical role to play in creating a more peaceful, just, and compassionate world — in our personal and public lives.

Pursuit of a truly equitable and level ‘playing field’ is unfolding before us in the current demonstrations — this must become a pivotal point in history. We all need to turn inward to address these issues; however, the onus falls first on those who benefit from white privilege.

Working Together in the Current Crisis

The national and international crisis we are facing is challenging us all in ways we could not even imagine a few months ago. While most of us have never experienced anything like the COVID 19 crisis
