TINA recently debuted on #HBOMax, exploring the life of Tina Turner. While the content was sensitive, we are happy that this icon has been able to have ownership over her story and triumph over her challenges. Have you seen this documentary?

Although social media is entertaining, make sure you’re protecting yourself and taking breaks as needed if you come across triggering or sensitive posts.

The Ending Human Trafficking podcast unpacks all topics related to trafficking and violence against women. https://t.co/zbUoo1SoA1

“Solidarity is not an act of charity, but mutual aid between forces fighting for the same objective.” - Samora Machel

#Repost National Freedom Day marks the day the resolution that proposed the 13th amendment to the United State’s Constitution on February 1, 1865. It's a day created by Major Richard Robert Wright Sr., a former slave. He believed that there should be a day when freedom for all Americans is celebrated. Wright passed at 92 years of age in 1947, so he didn’t live to see the results of his efforts. A year after his death, both houses of the U.S. Congress passed a bill to make February 1st Freedom Day. The national holiday proclamation was signed into law on June 30, 1948, by President Harry Truman. National Freedom Day was eventually expanded to what we celebrate this February, Black History Month.

Just a few weeks ago, a 24-year-old mother was arrested for leaving her children alone while she worked, inspiring spirited internet discussion. Why does our legal system punish struggling families for being low income? How will jail or the money spent on a court case help this mother and her children? Let’s move this conversation to our local representatives so we can make policy changes that better support children and families.

Last month, we accepted the resignation of our Executive Director, Llamilet Gutierrez. Llamilet has been a champion for Amara for the last few years, leading our organization through a period of growth and improvements. We are truly grateful for her service and drive to make an impact.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be looking for a demonstrated and dynamic leader to take on the executive director role come February. The ideal candidate should be passionate about social justice and committed to fostering a positive and inclusive culture among colleagues that reflect Amara’s commitment to diversity and racial equity.

If there’s one thing Cicely Tyson’s life taught us, it’s that perseverance and standing up for what you believe can change not only your life but the lives of generations to come. Tyson refused certain roles, standing firm on only portraying empowering and real depictions of Black women. It might have caused her years without a role from time to time, but she changed the game in the long run.

As we begin Black History Month, we want to show some love to those who came before us in the fight for equality, equity, and better treatment for Black people in the U.S. There are trailblazers hard at work right now and game-changers in the time to come. We’ll be here to cheer you on and work alongside you.

Shout out to officialcourtneyshouse for their work in supporting direct support to child sex trafficking survivors in our community. Courtney’s House is the only Black survivor-led sex trafficking organization in the DMV and only one of a few in the entire country. Executive Director, Tina Frundt, is a world renowned expert and we are grateful to have her in the DMV as a partner!

Did you know that name and gender marker changes are public record? That means all someone needs to see your record is internet access, which can completely defeat the purpose for many of our clients.

Our clients are consistently subject to harassment due to their gender identity and are discriminated against in their jobs and in housing because employers and landlords can see their name/gender marker change record. We work through the process so they can have a fully realized new beginning, participating in society without fear.

Coping with the isolation of being home alone due to the pandemic can be challenging and sometimes triggering. Staying connected virtually is the safest way to keep social! . Whether you’re talking to friends, family, a health care worker, or a counselor, social connection is helpful.

Black History Month always highlights Black individuals whose achievements are inspiring, but sometimes those achievements can feel unrealistic for the rest of us. Remember that no matter what life throws at you, this moment is not the final declaration.

Poet and activist, Maya Angelou was an iconic writer and one of the most memorable poets in history. As an adult, she was very vocal about the sexual abuse she experienced in her youth and the years she spent not speaking as a result. When she spoke out about her abuse in her writing, some places banned her work. Nevertheless, she persisted. Maya Angelou refused to be silenced or censored. She is just one example of the endless possibilities for survivors and the epitome of #BlackGirlMagic

You don’t have to go into politics or government to make a difference. Photographer Gordon Parks (1912 - 2006) was the first Black man to be a part of the staff of Life magazine, and was responsible for some of the amazing images in Vogue over the years. In a 1999 interview, he explained his passion for photography: “I saw that the camera could be a weapon against poverty, against racism, against all sorts of social wrongs. I knew at that point I had to have a camera.”

Your passion, hobby, and/or career can make a difference.

Last month, you probably saw lots of posts about couples, relationship goals, and talk about dating. Don’t let social media pressure you into a relationship if you’re not sure you’re ready for one, and especially if there are red flags present. Move at your own pace. There’s nothing wrong with focusing on yourself and being single.

Want to be extra safe when dating online? Get a free Google Voice phone number and keep your personal number secure. With the Google Voice app, you can check your calls, voicemails, and messages without giving out your real number. You can also block anyone who comes across as sketchy.
