Today, was honored to receive a Local "Public Health Heroes" award from the City of Minneapolis alongside my friend & artistic collaborator Amoke Kubat - recognizing our work to bring art and care into climate change preparedness, with a focus on the creativity, resilience and wisdom of mothers. I’ve learned so much from Amoke, she is a real hero!

Amoke and I will continue to work with the City of Minneapolis to develop artistic and community engagement programs that center the wisdom of mothers and other caregivers, especially women of color.
