As mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends, we feel the pain of all people of color who have suffered from, or have a family member victimized by brutality and injustice. We share your outrage.
We believe that Black lives are equally entitled to liberty and justice. We think the stains of racism and sexism must be cleansed from the fiber of every society for the world to live in peace. To achieve this, individuals must take responsibility, and alone or with others, seek solutions and take action.
Part of our mission is activism, so we stand with the Black Lives Matter movement because we believe that all humans are connected.
To quote Rosa Parks, “I believe there is only one race – the human race.”
