What Do We Need to Do to "Get to Zero"?

The most important thing is to educate people. We can't keep talking to the same people. We can't keep doing the same things that we're doing. I think that's what it's going to take. It's not just us, within our own community. We need to band together and make sure we're not necessarily pitted against each other. I'm obviously referring to communities of color. We just need to get together and make sure that everyone is taken care of, and make sure that people are educated appropriately -- whether that's just talking to your friend or talking to a stranger on the bus. It's a little bit difficult, but sometimes you've just got to go out there and do it, and the more times you do it, the easier it gets.
