#PeacefulMondays: Our power with each other

By Maya Mathias / October 16, 2017

A few #PeacefulMondays ago, I shared the realities of using my voice in a label-happy world – as a woman, minority and immigrant – knowing how far our species has yet to go in transcending the struggles those labels represent.

This article is part of our Election 2016 Anthology. It’s Thursday Jan 19th 2017. In less than 12 hours, the Oval Office will change hands from President Barack Obama to President Donald J Trump.
