People We Love: Stacey Milbern, Berkeley, CA

This quote from Stacey Milbern really speaks to the invisible forces that surround women of color and disabled women of color in particular.

We know that women of color have been asked to hide and deny their perspectives in service of others. Sharing that you feel critical of something can be a threat to others, and the consequences can be scary. At same time, your thoughts are a huge part of who you are. The world gets better when you are your authentic you. Documenting it for the public is one of the most radical things a person can do.
