You may recall that Our Human Family has done a special poetry series each May for the past two years (2020, 2021), titled Equal People. It’s been so popular that this year we’re mixing it up a little by jumping into fiction and making it a short story contest. We’ll be featuring works inspired by the following prompt:

The empathy pill — a single pill…




​Our Human Family celebrates the inherent value of all human beings by fostering conversations on racial equity, allyship, inclusion, antiracism, and equality.
