Like many of you, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about our world. It hurts me to my core to know that Black people continue to be seen as threats in our society. It hurts me to know that there never has been and may never be the appropriate amount of accountability and action taken for all the precious lives that have been lost. I hate feeling this way, but more importantly- I hate to see my community hurt in this way.
Racial trauma is real. Inter-generational trauma is real. Collective trauma is happening. Each and every time we see one of our own murdered or hurting, it hurts us too because we are one people. No, we are not a monolith, but we are a collective group who’s identity and existence is deeply connected with one another.
THAT is why this hurts so bad. THAT is why you feel so angry and exhausted. THAT is why it’s so hard to focus.
In moments like this, I never want us to lose sight of the things that STILL matter. The world would lead us to believe that our lives don’t matter, but they still do. We absolutely must continue to pursue our goals, dreams, and passions. We must take really really good care of ourselves. We must continue to love and support each other the best we can. These things matter and they are forms of activism because it fights back against a system that would rather see us dead.

In this program, you're guaranteed to:
This 6-Week Program includes:
Please don't underestimate the importance of pursuing your passions, taking care of yourself, and fiercely loving your family in times like this. These are forms of activism. Self-care is still a worthy and necessary form of political warfare. I look forward to connecting with you!
