Empowering Professionals. Driving Impact.

Our Stories Are Our Strength.

Our shared stories and collective struggles are of value. We are of value. All of the tears, rage, heartache, helpless feelings, dismissals and stigma we receive matters. Even if our state leaders are not willing to value them. I do, and I know you do too. So, let’s tell our story. Let’s weave the fabric of where we are and where we have been. Let’s rely on ourselves and our connection to heal where our leaders are failing us. Let’s build our own legacy for our children. Your pain is our pain. Your struggle is our struggle. Your strength is our strength. Your fight is our fight. This is our collective journal. This is all of us. It is our story. It is our values that determine our legacy- not our state leaders. That much is clear.
