Supporting my Ohana of color!

Aloha Amici... As the ally, diversity, inclusion and equality advocate that I am, and have been all my Life I wanted to dedicate this space on my blog to keep supporting my Ohana of color. 
There are a lot of ways we can have our voice heard, our actions taken accountable and where we can keep fighting for racial justice.
There is no space for Silence! if you are not able (like me) to go out and protest, there are a lot of ways you can still take actions:
  • Donate to BLM organizations.
  • Send emails to governors of the state to demand justice (I’ve Emails addresses, message me if you need them).
  • Support and shop your local Black owned businesses.
  • Sign petitions.
  • Spread the word and reach out to the boutiques and brands you have collaborated with or promote and pledge for the 15%. Do it on local shops too.
  • VOTE!
  • Call and talk to your Ohana of color and show them your love, aloha and support.
  • And again: DON’T BE SILENT! Keep moving, keep taking actions!!!

Thank you so much for reading and most importantly for supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement. Remember to keep taking actions, to educate those who do not understand and fight against racism.
I live you with something I wrote recently, hope this inspires and open peoples eyes and hearts...

"When I look at you my eyes go blind, I can’t see a color on your skin, what I can only see is your heart ❤️I’ve been educated to always see like this and be this way. Please educate yourself. Nobody is born racist. Your education and background made you that way. You were born to see with eyes of kindness so train your eyes to see with your heart. It will make a big difference in the world we live in today and it will set free to those who have been let down, hurt and broken in pieces. It will open your heart, it will open your eyes and it will make one day this world a peaceful place to live in where race is not a word anymore because we are and always will be all equal. It’s our responsibility as allies to fight, to demand justice and to educate those to be the change! It’s never too late to try to find kindness within yourself and to try to understand that in the eyes of the Universe, God, Buddha, and whomever you believe in: WE ARE ALL EQUAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. ✊🏿✊🏼✊🏾✊🏽✊
