This week I am muting my voice (or at least dimming it down) to help amplify the voices of women of color. I am allowing myself to be uncomfortable while I learn and grow. I want to be in the arena, taking risks and creating positive social change in our country. I want to help end systemic racism in our country.

I invite you to join me by listening, learning, following and donating to these organizations.
