“Each of us is striving to be the best version of ourselves possible. To do this, we need to face all that is keeping us from being so. We must engage in reflecting, connecting and healing within while guiding these practices at home and in our communities. The equity work that starts from within is what promotes authentic connections, builds trust and honors our inherent dignity, that is needed to transform our educational systems.” – Marisol Quevedo Rerucha
