I decided to use my voice against racism. I never wrote about it or shared my stories with people outside of my friends and family until recently. Why? I never thought it would change. Now, after a lifetime of living in Black skin, I’m encouraged.
We can all choose to stand up with our stories. Our voices matter. Whether you advocate for yourself or social justice, you have a voice… use it! I saw the incomparable @gloriasteinem speak at the @Ma Conference for Women in 2018. Staying silent isn’t an option anymore. We have seen how powerful we can be when we speak up.
