What People Say

“I was built this way for a reason, so I’m going to use it.”

Simone Biles

“I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same as the meaning of the fact that I am black; it means that I must undertake to love myself and to respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.”

June Jordan

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

Audre Lorde

Let’s build something together.
