Dear Troublemakers,

I am writing to express my deep disappointment over the recent Supreme Court decisions regarding affirmative action, the student forgiveness plan, and the website designer case. As an individual who believes in the power of equality and justice, these rulings have shaken me, and I understand how they may have affected you as well.

Affirmative action has been a critical tool in promoting inclusivity and addressing historical disadvantages faced by marginalized communities. It is disheartening to witness setbacks in this important effort to create equal opportunities for all. We must continue to advocate for policies that dismantle systemic barriers and foster an inclusive society where everyone has a fair chance to succeed.

“The majority’s vision of race neutrality will entrench racial segregation in higher education because racial inequality will persist so long as it is ignored.” Sonia Sotomayor

The decision regarding the student forgiveness plan has also left many feeling disempowered. Higher education should be a pathway to opportunity, enabling individuals to pursue their dreams without the burden of insurmountable debt. I share your disappointment in the setback this ruling presents, as it undermines the efforts to alleviate the financial burdens on countless students and hinder their ability to thrive in their chosen fields.

“Today, the majority pulls the ripcord and announces ‘colorblindness for all’ by legal fiat. But deeming race irrelevant in law does not make it so in life.No one benefits from ignorance.” Kentaji Brown Jackson

Furthermore, the recent case involving the website designer raises concerns about equal treatment and protection of civil rights in the digital realm. It is disheartening to witness another ruling that may impede progress toward a more inclusive environment.

In times like these, it is crucial that we refuse to be deferred, but instead empower ourselves and use our voices to advocate for change. We must engage in dialogue, educate others about the impact of these decisions, and work towards creating a more just and equitable society. Your voice matters, and through open discussions, raising awareness, and supporting organizations that champion equity and equality, we can collectively make a difference. These are not setbacks, but the universe calling you to be a catalyst for change.

Please know that you are not alone in your disappointment, and there are many individuals and organizations actively working to address these challenges. Together, we can strive for a future where justice and equality prevail.

If there is anything I can do to support your efforts or if you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact me at Let us stand together, shine our light, and continue to work towards a better and more inclusive society.

With solidarity and hope,
