Wild Woman Wednesday!

Let’s honor Patrisse Cullors, an American artist, queer activist, and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement.  Her 19-year-old brother was brutalized during imprisonment in Los Angeles County jails, and this was her motivation for advocating for African-American rights. As a result of frustration over George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, Cullors helped start the Black Lives Matter movement. 

“For me, seeking spirituality had a lot to do with trying to seek understanding about my conditions—how these conditions shape me in my everyday life and how I understand them as part of a larger fight, a fight for my life.”
