    "Look at women for solutions and resilience - and don't speak on behalf of women, which is what we often get, especially women of colour. Give us space, let us have our voices, and let us be heard."

    If we are unable to accept some, it’s a very slippery slope to many.
    If we recognize the gifts of those different from ourselves, we recognize the gifts of more and more people, and we are more likely to recognize the gifts of those things different within ourselves.

    I love that we’re learning about new ways to help our planet. I think I love  as much or even more the personal connections we’re making and growing through this experience with each other and with those  we reach out to.
