When 13-year-old Mo’ne Davis struck out three players in the sixth and final inning of her Little League match Friday night, she did more than secure the Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons their 4-0 victory. She earned her own place in the books as the first girl to throw a shutout in the Little League postseason. (via Mo’ne Davis - This 13-Year-Old Girl Has Already Made Baseball History - Elle)
On Aug. 9th, 2014 a Ferguson, Missouri police officer racially profiled and fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown as the teen stood with his hands in the air. His family and community members are calling it an execution. Racially-motivated police violence has no place in law enforcement and represents the systemic police abuse against Black communities in Ferguson and Missouri at large. Enough is enough. We need widespread public pressure to ensure justice for Michael’s family and to prevent this type of indefensible violence in the future. Please join me in calling on federal and city officials to investigate, prosecute, and fire all officers involved by clicking here.
"I remember when I first started my business, fear held me back from launching my website, I thought it wasn’t good enough. Fear held me back from creating content for my followers, I thought it wasn’t deep enough. Fear held me back from launching online, I thought I didn’t know enough. When I finally turned the light on in the dark room where fear is created I realized just how amazing I truly am."
