Our membership is made up of students from all walks of life, so it's important we understand not only their gifts, but also their struggles. It is in this spirit we want to offer support to our Black student leaders. Black lives matter. Key Club International not only stands together with the Black community in solidarity but also urges our members to provide support, educate themselves, and listen. In a pivotal time like this, our organization encourages our members to do their part in creating a future in which we continue to actively address the following
Key Club objectives:
• Preparing for useful citizenship
•Developing a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship
• Cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill
We urge our members to use the empathy and leadership skills gained from Key Club to enact change during this time. Here are a few ways to be supportive:
• Understanding community issues and playing an active role in the voting process
o White Fragility Robin DiAngelo
o The New Jim Crow - Michelle Alexander
o You're More Powerful Than You Think Eric Liu
• We will be following up with additional reading pieces and resources
• Invite a local leader to discuss diversity, equity, and inequality
• Empathizing with your peers
