This week, we are turning toward the act of elevation. Matshona Dhliwayo, philosopher, entrepreneur, and author, speaks to the power of elevation in the following quote:
During the month of June, we channeled our energy toward achieving one actionable step each week in the fight against systemic racism. Elevation is the capstone of our conversation, but our efforts don’t and can’t stop here. Black Lives Matter is not just a moment, but a movement. As we reflect on the powerful events that transpired over the past few weeks, we are committed to continually elevating this movement going forward by supporting Black-owned businesses, amplifying Black voices, and showing up to learn every day.
We invite you to join us as we elevate the ongoing quest for racial justice and empower our BIPOC brothers and sisters into the future. While this commitment looks different for everyone, we suggest starting with acting with intention and prioritizing regular self care to ensure a sustainable movement!
At the end of the day, we rise by lifting others.
We’d love to hear from you!
What does elevation mean to you? How do you elevate your existence? How do you elevate others?
