"This may only be a dream of mine, but I think it can be made real."
- Ella Baker
Hi, I'm Caitie.
Here's what I know:
(1) It wasn't about water fountains then and it's not about bathrooms now.
(2) This world isn't safe for Black, Brown, or any person of color.
(3) I will never understand and I'm committed to learning.
(4) I believe we can co-create a world where everyone knows, without a doubt, they matter and their life and happiness is worth fighting for.
I know what it's like to have goals for your life, and even after doing all the "right" things, working tirelessly, warding off the negativity, checking the boxes... it still didn't work out. Or maybe it did and it just didn't feel the way you'd imagined...so what do we do?
Where they gave us a door, we opt for the window.
I serve the window seekers, people who are driven by the belief that humanity deserves better. Who know that until we all feel empowered, none of us really are. Who know the vision they have for their life isn't optional, it's a directive and only they choose their own "right" way to make it come alive.
