Black Lives Matter.






ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! I am deeply saddened and outraged by the injustice, inequality and racism in this country and I will use my voice and my platforms to speak up and fully support the Black Lives Matter movement! I stand with all POC in the fight to make a change in this broken system.

This is not a political movement, but a human rights movement. We must all use our voices, donate, sign petitions, educate ourselves and have conversations with those around us, because together we can make a difference.
