It doesn't work though - it's much better to 'write fire until it's every breath you breathe' to know you've tried the best you can. Here's to all you meteors, trying & fighting.

For #blackhistorymonth, we would like to recognize Audre Lorde, a Black feminist leader. In our work at the Amara Legal Center, we look at our clients' lives through an intersectional lens like Lorde prescribes, realizing the impacts of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, etc. on their experiences.

In addition, it is every woman's obligation to choose at least one cause to better the lives of women worldwide and educate and support that cause. It is up to us...
