Doing so inspires our community, educates our allies and unites us in our collective struggle for true equality and liberation.

This is part of CEP's My Truth, My Story empowerment, diversity, cultural, and intimate conversation series, with a special focus on healing and healthy relationships with oneself, our partners, and our families.
