Sandra Bernabei, LCSW

 

Liberation Psychotherapist

 

"All I want is for my child to have a fair chance at what others get. Equity without minority status!"

 

When I heard these words from another parent, I took my first step toward becoming a community organizer for anti-racist change. It has turned into a lifetime journey of learning and personal growth that has brought me to a greater sense of humanity than I could ever have imagined, a committed life to the realities described in the stunning writings of Ta-Nehisi Coates in “Between the World and Me” (Spiegel & Grau, 2015), which is a letter to his son. His book is essential reading for a just world. It is my dream that our social work community will move towards this humanity by building a human rights agenda that demands for all a fair chance for a better life.
