52. Once You’re Aware, You Can Never Become Unaware with Special Contributor Jerrell Everett

This year has been something else, but it is my biggest hope that it can be the year that we usher in hope and change and revolution and unity and make huge, cross-generational strides to stamp out racism completely. Today I talk about how the work of Be The Bridge changed my life forever. Writer Jerrell Everett shares her latest blog post titled “On Racism and Beautiful Black Babies” to truly help us understand why #BlackLivesMatter is important. This week’s first community challenge is to be proactive in the work to become anti-racist and to support the women who are working in this space. Our second challenge is to widen your circle, to elevate black voices, and to ask businesses to do better when it comes to representation. Can your favorite brands pass the #27PhotosChallenge? Please donate to Be The Bridge, a non-profit that focuses on racial reconciliation by training organizations, churches, small groups, and individuals to be bridge builders-- that is, to cross the divide and help close the gap in their communities when it comes to systemic racism.  Looking for resources on racial reconciliation for moms?
