What Our Community is Saying

We hear from the community, we want to hear from you – here are some of the things folx in our community are saying.

“About a year ago we had less than 80 members of this FB group. We now have over 200. Our fight to get SRO’s out of our schools was nascent, City Council didn’t know what Juneteenth was, and my hair was so long I was giving off major 1970’s Bob Seger vibes. We have accomplished so much together and I’m deeply proud to be a part of this beloved NSSA community.”

“When Black Americans talk about being proud to be Black, they are not referencing their skin color. “Say it loud, I’m Black and I’m proud” is about who we are. Because we had every bit of our culture and ethnic pride taken from us hundreds of years ago, we have had to reinvent these things. Black isn’t our skin color, it’s our core. You can be proud to be Irish, Italian, Norwegian, English, etc… but being proud to be white means you are proud of your skin color, and being proud of your skin color is not only completely silly as you can’t control it, it lends itself to “heritage preservation”.

“I’m so thrilled this group exists! I was born & mostly raised here in St. A and I’ve struggled my whole life feeling like an unwanted outsider in my own town (partially bc I’m Queer and also bc I haven’t met or felt close to other like-minded folks in social settings in St. A.”
