Ep 66. WE MATTER - Processing what's happening right now

We're getting weary, and there's a lot happening right now, so we wanted to take a minute to talk about some of the things that we're feeling within our community.   We aim to provide some solidarity and sister-ship during this time. 

In this episode, we share our experiences, share support around what's happening in the US and around the world, as well as providing advice on how we can practice self-care in a situation like this.
