PREFACE: Now more than ever, the messages of unity especially amongst women are particularly important. We shot this cover before the election results even took place & we never could have imagined then how important the messages in the Inspiring Lives Magazine “WOMEN OF COLOR & POWER ISSUE” would be. As we watch our rights be seized from under us as women & our safe spaces eradicated, we will HOLD EACH OTHER UP & RESIST THE ATTACK ON OUR RIGHTS, OUR BODIES, OUR AUTONOMY, OUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE & ULTIMATELY OUR LIVES. This is in fact- a fight for our lives. GET IN FORMATION. ✊✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
