Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian Featured in “Time to Listen Tuesdays”

L. M. Quraishi is a children’s book writer, teacher and mother who is also involved in the We Need Diverse Books initiative.

Quraishi runs a series on her website called #TimetoListen Tuesdays that is dedicated to listening to the voices of people who are advocating for diverse books for children and featured my note, “On Power & Privilege Denial, and “Hurt Feelings” in Social Justice Work” in her series this week.

“Every once in a while I stumble on a blog so thought-provoking and essential that it renews my gratitude for the age of information in which we live. This article by Relando Thompkins-Jones from his blog Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian, perfectly continues the dialogue Ellen Ohand Libby Bray began, about how critical it is for each and every one of us to make space to listen to those less privileged than ourselves.”

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
