Standing together in solidarity + community in order to take collective action is what will bring change to this world. The message of oneness is what we must live our daily lives by. In order to get to oneness each individual must be able to feel safe, secure, seen, loved + equal. We have a rigid system of privilege + domination that is allowing for our society to become more polarized than ever while we also allow for blaming to keep occurring. In order for us to live equally we must recognize + unravel our privilege while also dismantling white supremacy, white feminism, homophobia, rape culture + racism.
The energy at this march was more uplifting than any other march or protest I’ve been to + it recharged my soul. As my sign stated, I marched for intersectional feminism + love. We must build community in order for us to have a liberation + the only way to build strong community is to be intersectional by including all women + any person who identifies as a woman in this movement + in our fight for equality. If you don’t know about intersectionality or intersectional feminism I suggest you watch some of advocate Kimberle Crenshaw’s videos then DM me for all my other teachers on this subject + on the subject of dismantling white feminism + white supremacy. We have a lot of work to do as a society + especially as white women, I will be sharing more on this subject soon.
I’m grateful to have marched with 3 goddess women who each have had such big impacts on my life + I’m thankful to call my best friends. Each of them entered my life in different stages + I’m so happy we all came together to march for equality. Some of my best friends: @sloanejoietrugman
- we grew up together, weren’t close friends then + have reconnected on a very deep level through our journeys of introspection, @amandadeegee
- we met on a cruise in the Caribbean + bonded strongly to later find out our parents had already been friends for years + @melmonifi
- we met in Israel on birthright, have been soul sisters ever since. Thank you for marching beside me, thank you for being you + thank you for seeing me as me. I love each of you more than words, united we stand forever + always💃🏽🌻
