“Parents tend to prioritize their children’s happiness and achievements over their children’s concern for others. But children need to learn to balance their needs with the needs of others, whether it’s passing the ball to a teammate or deciding to stand up for friend who is being bullied.?Washington Post

I was so honored to be able to speak today and most importantly have these brave women next to me. It was an honor and privilege to be able to share my story and make an impact.

These are our #SheDoes Warriors who spoke today at the Measure H fund allocation hearing. These #SheDoes Warriors not only spoke, but 5 shared their personal stories of surviving sexual assault, rape, homelessness and mental illness. They spoke as women who conquered insurmountable odds who are now advocating for those whose voices are being ignored. The panel started on a light note but after hearing these #SheDoes Warriors, the mood changed from happy to somber to an atmosphere of how do we help our homeless mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers. Our speakers humanized a dehumanized population using their own experiences.
One of the moderators behind the panel kept wiping away tears & afterward many came up to our group and thanked us for the impact our speakers made. What #SheDoes will achieve beyond sheltering the first 1000 women is humanizing and changing the way people see homeless women.
That is the power of the hashtag #SheDoes. That is the difference you make every time you comment #SheDoes. If it hasn’t occurred to you yet, please know that what you are doing is changing the way Angelenos see homeless women from drug addicts & failures to showing them as our mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers!
