In this episode of the She Finds Joy podcast, Kim takes on the difficult topic of racism. This episode is different and hard, but necessary.
Kim states her core values and support for the Black Lives Matter movement. She explains a few ways we can show up for people of color and do the work that is necessary to dismantle systemic racism. Kim believes we all must stand up and protect Black lives and human rights.
This episode is an invitation to join Kim in open conversation about the state of existence in America and the reignited revolutionary action that’s taking place. America was built on enslavement and it’s up to us to make the necessary changes that will protect Black lives in communities across the country. Racism is not an individual concept, but a deeply-embedded institution of power that seeps into every corner of this country and we must acknowledge it and fight for change.
