BLACK LIVES MATTER! Information on how to stay informed and help those who are in the fight for justice!
The recent killings of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor reminded the world that we need immediate change and real reforms to a justice system built on racism. As an artist, I've struggled over the last two weeks with being creative or promoting any of my successes. I'm hurting along with my community and fearing the safety of my love ones. I don't know when I will regain my peace, but what gives me hope during these unprecedented and traumatic times is the attention and outrage these injustices are receiving around the globe.
