“I have personally experienced racism in my life and seen my family and friends experience racism, and I am speaking from the heart when I appeal for change. It is important to seize this moment and use it to educate ourselves whether you are individual, brand, or company to make real meaningful changes when it comes to ensuring equality and inclusivity.”
