We aren’t posting a #FlutterGoodNewsWednesday article this week.
Here on the Flutter and Dart teams, we want to take this moment to stand with the Black community and tell you: we stand with you, we see you and we support you. This week’s events in the USA are a painful reminder that systemic racism remains prevalent and that justice is distributed unevenly in our society.
We know that these are not issues that are solved with a few words; we need to engage individually and corporately. We also acknowledge that we’re part of the problem, and that many of us have work to do to examine our biases and privilege.
We’re encouraging our teams to take time this week to learn and reflect on how we can be better allies and better foster diversity in our own community. Some of us are reading books like The New Jim Crow and watching documentaries like 13th; we have also found these guides to be helpful: White Guyde To The Galaxy and Save the Tears: White Woman’s Guide.
We’ll be quiet for the rest of this week and focus on amplifying voices of color.
