Across the country, people of good will are standing up and taking action to promote diversity, counter hatred and build stronger communities. Blount County United provides a vehicle for people in our county to advocate for meaningful change. 

 Join us in that task. There is much that you can do in your home and in your community. A good place to start is to take a critical look at your own thoughts, beliefs and behaviors. Reflect and endeavor to root out whatever biases, stereotypes and prejudices that are found within the insistent self.   

  Your contributions to the work can make a real difference. Speak up in ways that draw attention away from hatred and toward unity instead. Become informed about racism and hate crimes—what they are, how they exist and are perpetuated.
