Being honored by the White House was an incredibly humbling experience. I was uncomfortable being singled-out for work that so many amazing individuals were a part of. I stand in solidarity with all advocates who make a diffence in their communities every day. I also acknowledge the kupuna in the social justice movement - pioneers who had the strength, grace, and audacity to be their authentic selves. Let's continue to all work with audacity and in solidarity to finish the important work yet to be accomplished.
