I never thought my family and I getting poisoned would open my eyes to the countless racial, economic, environmental and overall social injustices in this world. Especially in this land of the free. It's horrific. So do we sit back and let ourselves be overwhelmed and shut down? Do we allow self-pity and trauma take over? Or do we stand together and fight back?
I'm in awe of all the amazing and historical moments I've been honored to be a part of in just 3 short years. For example, this amazing "Nevertheless We Persisted" NRDC panel at The Womens Convention.
