OUR PRESIDENT



In the wake of yet another highly publicized shooting of an unarmed black man by law enforcement, increasing COVID numbers as our children return to school, and the upcoming 2020 election; we women of color have a lot on our plates ( as if we didn’t already).  I just want to take a moment to encourage each of you.  I know our battles vary, but I also know that we can get through them.  We are strong and we are fierce.  We may have to cry, get angry, tired and even frustrated (as is human nature) but we will not give up or give in.  Our ancestors survived the months long journey in the bowels of a ship to a land of enslavement.  Our ancestors survived over 400 years of slavery at the hands of brutal cowardly savages.  Our ancestors survived the Post Civil-War America that reeked of inequality, racism, sexism, and lynchings. I know they survived because we are their living testimonies. Yes our battles are tough, but theirs were tougher and they persevered. So must we!  Sisters take you a moment, if needed, to lament all the obstacles we are facing but after that moment get up, wipe your face, put on your purple and white and vote!  Not just you, take others with you.  Most states haven’t reached their deadlines for voter’s registration as of today.  We can’t just reflect on our obstacles, we have to plan how to overcome them and the first step is being active in your community and voting.  Please visit and share the NACWC Legislation and Political Action Committee’s webpage to understand how to make a difference in your community https://shoutout.wix.com/so/fdN0YZT6z#/main.

Let us remember "Lifting As We Climb" is our lifestyle not just our motto,
 


Andrea Brooks-Smith, 
NACWC, Inc. 30th President
