On behalf of the entire team at Equality for HER: Thank you for making 2017 an amazing year. From achieving new goals to reaching new heights -- 2017 was a historic year for our mission and our brand. There's a lot that we are leaving in 2017, but we are taking a few key messages with us into the new year.

-Don't take a meeting with someone just because they asked you to
-Remember to give credit, signal boost, and celebrate the work of others
-Be mindful of what I ask from others in terms of emotional labor and time
-Honor my bodymind and embrace my current state
Black Women:— Brittany Packnett (@MsPackyetti) December 30, 2017
We swallow the racism and bear the burdens of the world. Let’s let 2018 be the year we operate with self-care, time, space and support. If no one will do it for us, let’s commit to doing it for ourselves.
This can’t ever happen again.
I’m begging us.
