RAK Definition: Caring is feeling and showing concern for others.
Our challenge comes when we see, hear, or witness things with which we cannot empathize (because we do not have common ground with that experience). Individually or in small groups, think of a social justice issue that you cannot easily relate to because you have not personally experienced it, but that you feel strongly about and want to know moreabout so you can better empathize with and care for those most impacted. Research this issue and find one article that helps give you a better perspective. Write down five new things you learned that can help you better understand the issue and one action you could do to take care of those most impacted.Current social justice issues you could explore: ● Institutionalized racism ● Women’s rights ● Voting rights ● Socio-economic injustices
