12. How Can I Use My Voice for Social Change? With Brandon Kyle Goodman
The murder of George Floyd was shocking and changed all of us -- regardless of our racial identities. For nonbinary activist, actor, and writer Brandon Kyle Goodman, it was a moment for them to find their voice. In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, Brandon posted a video on Instagram addressed to his white friends who were reaching out, asking them what they should do. That video went viral, and Brandon continued to use their social media platform to give space for Black trauma AND Black joy, modeling a way for others to express themselves, to learn, to be heard, and to find their voice. This episode's practice is about finding spaces of belonging, and how to use your voice for social change. Even when you’re afraid. Want to connect?
