Before we get into the COVID data, I want to share part of a message Nancy sent our CCs (Crisis Counselors) Monday night:
America is hurting. Grappling with centuries of racial injustice. Black Americans are feeling tired, angry, full of grief, and at risk. This week we’ve seen that pain reach a tipping point in our communities and in our texter conversations. Mentions of “Black”, “racism”, and “protests” have increased 10% in our conversations in the last 2 days.
Crisis Text Line is here to listen.
Thank you for the important role you play in ensuring everyone knows we are here to listen.
