Podcasters for justice


I stand with my sisters from the WOC (Women Of Color) Podcasters Community, lead by Danielle Desir and crafted by mighty change-maker Tangia Al-awaji Estrada.

I join with other women, young and old, of every color, who have built engaged audiences that listen to our voices regularly, We know, with a coordinated effort, we can combine OUR voices to take a STRONG stance against racism and police brutality.
We serve many audiences, but we can speak with one voice. One voice that does not mince words and demands justice.
“We are podcasters united to condemn the tragic murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and many many others at the hands of police. This is a continuation of the systemic racism pervasive in our country since its inception and we are committed to standing against racism in all its forms.
We believe that to be silent is to be complicit.
We believe that Black lives matter.
We believe that Black lives are more important than property.
We believe that we have a responsibility to use our platforms to speak out against this injustice whenever and wherever we are witness to it.
In creating digital media we have built audiences that return week after week to hear our voices and we will use our voices to speak against anti-blackness and police brutality, and we encourage you, the listeners of our podcasts to be educated, engaged, and to take action.
