3. Healing + Resilience

Get Together. Whether you’re learning about this for the first time or you’ve already known about this challenging history, it’s hard to hold it all alone. When big questions or emotions come up, talk about what you’re feeling with friends, family or teachers. It’s important to decompress, ask questions and express your opinions with people you can trust.
