Someone I look up to shared this Audre Lorde quote this week & it was exactly what I needed. It's overwhelming to see the scope of how deep systemic oppression runs in this country. It's tempting to quit trying, quit knowing just how terrible things are. It doesn't work though - it's much better to 'write fire until it's every breath you breathe' to know you've tried the best you can. Here's to all you meteors, trying & fighting.

Our silence will NOT save us! Every woman has the obligation to teach their sons and daughters with regard to respect, dignity, equality and right to live. In addition, it is every woman's obligation to choose at least one cause to better the lives of women worldwide and educate and support that cause. It is up to us...

In our work at the Amara Legal Center, we look at our clients' lives through an intersectional lens like Lorde prescribes, realizing the impacts of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, etc. on their experiences.
