Amazing news out of Georgia, literally shocked (not shocked?) about the terrorist attack at the US Capitol building RIGHT NOW. Clearly we look forward to a government that is more representative and continue the conversation about we want the state and country to look like while investing in the leadership and vision of women of color.
So trying to step back from this chaos and reflect, I took a bit of time off with my family over the holidays, which if you know me is rare. Part of activism includes self-care and space to reflect to grow stronger and I finally acted on that advice. As I jump back in right on the heels of the launch of the 2021 Rhode Island General Assembly and this new energy of a new day in our country, I am excited and finally feeling hopeful.
The past year was difficult and we still face a major crisis that we will only get through by coming together. We have the chance to push for real relief that does not leave anyone behind and continue to build momentum for other important changes to meet the needs of our families. Join myself and some special guests on Thursday, January 21st at 7pm on Zoom to talk about our next steps in 2021 and how you can be part of future change. RSVP here.
Since I am more of a visual person than writer, I thought it would be fun to share our year in review through images. Below you will find pictures of different highlights. Each one links to a webpage with more information on the event if you want to reflect further with us.
In spite of all that we have faced, I am proud of the community and movement we have built as well as look forward to building more of it. The Womxn Project board of directors and myself look forward to continued opportunities to advance health, justice and liberation with you!
