The Equity Alliance and Black voter equality

PURPOSE. Why are you here? What unique calling were you created to fulfill? That’s a question many of us ask. Tequila Johnson and Charlane Oliver discovered their purpose and have been pursuing it, unafraid, unabashed, unapologetic, just like everything else Black women do. I had the pleasure of serving The Equity Alliance for a few years and witnessed their work firsthand. These two sisters are on FIRE, and quite frankly, they’ve always been.

The goal is real EQUITY in all aspects for people of color. The seeds have been planted and now the harvest is being reaped. Tell everyone you know to contribute to their efforts. Press on my legendary sisters. We need you now more than ever. I love you both. #TheEquityAlliance #PurposeDriven #BlackGirlMagic
