Racial Justice

To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time. 

- James Baldwin 

Bryce's commitment to racial equity stems from growing up as a bi-racial child, with two Latinx siblings and a white mom in the South.  Because of his diverse racial background and family makeup, Bryce faced taunts and jeers from his classmates in primary and secondary school.  As he grew older and transitioned into living as his authentic self, Bryce had to confront the realities of navigating the world as a Black man. Transitioning into his masculinity meant that Bryce was faced with new challenges such as being a target of police harassment. Through these experiences and his studies, Bryce has cultivated a critical lens and framework related to racial equity and advocating for people of color who collectively continue their struggle for freedom from systemic racism. 

Bryce uses storytelling, data analysis, and community engagement to work to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline, address police violence, and close the gap faced by people of color in accessing health care, housing and education.
