This week, we had a really timely discussion about what it means to be both in the fight for social justice and an ally. Our guests, Sam Bissonnette and Andy Riemer are 2 creatives and trailblazers using media, early childhood education, Asian American studies, masculinity and women's studies along with a wealth of lived experience and passion to make a difference in our world.
Their work reflects the idea that we can never know a person's story just by looking at them and that we are all both person's impacted by social injustice and allies at the same time. They teach us to use our gifts and talents and most importantly, #privilege, in ways that benefit all. They also teach us that we should always strive to grow, be empathic and serve in our own way.
Sam and Andy inspire me and I know they will inspire you too.
