Black History Month: Elect Black Women

Beloved Community of Mothers,

This weekend I attended the annual Women of Color Roar Breakfast in San Diego California with my 12-year-old son.

In the rhythm of Black History Month, we gathered to celebrate transformative leadership.

Michele Obama implores us to open doors of opportunity and ensure that every voice is not just heard but amplified. Together, our voices resonate in a call to action—to create a world where the leadership of Black women is not just acknowledged but embraced.

In the dance of motherhood, we celebrate the Black women who have been the nurturing heartbeats of our communities. As Congresswoman Barbara Lee spoke about her journey into this world, it called us to honor the mothers who have not only birthed children but movements, shaping the course of history with their resilience.

As we stand at the crossroads of electoral choices, let us recognize that the ballot is not just a piece of paper; it is a vessel for change. By electing Black women, we cast a vote for a future where diversity is not just acknowledged but cherished, where the strength of intersectional experiences fuels progress.

Our journey toward justice is intertwined with the recognition of shared humanity. Let us dismantle the barriers that hold others back, acknowledging that when one woman rises, we all rise. In electing Black women, we affirm that leadership knows no bounds and that every voice, regardless of race or gender, is an essential note in the symphony of progress.

With love, solidarity, and an unwavering commitment to the inclusive future we are crafting,
