This election exposed and ignited the willful ignorance and hateful rhetoric of sexism and racism. We have an opportunity as the world is watching, to voice our values of treating each other and ourselves with dignity and respect. When we speak bravely and listen with respect, social evolution happens. No matter what…we’ll keep moving forward – Meredith Villano, Co-Founder, Paradigm Shift NYC
