DCERP has been such a great experience so far! Learning about everyone’s internships and their experiences is great. Another great thing is connecting with the community group on anti-racism. Anti-racism has always been a topic that was never really touched upon back in my hometown and I was never really educated much about it. Talking with my community group helps me learn about the other perspectives, how people feel, and what their experiences were like. I’ve gained so much more knowledge on anti-racism and it feels good to be able to know that my community group is willing to help me learn and understand what their opinions are and what we could do as a society to change the way racism should be treated. I’m really enjoying DCERP and connecting with the fellows and hopefully we can all get together before the program ends! I also go in-person for the first time tomorrow with 826michigan so I’m really excited to see what that’s like!
