JOIN ME IN SUPPORTING THE ADVANCEMENT PROJECT! – September 1, 2020
“I firmly believe that an artist’s goal is to provoke a conversation and drive introspection. I’m compelled to act, and thus I’m donating all proceeds from my book sales for the entire month of September to Advancement Project National Office—a multi-racial, policy, communications, and legal action group committed to civil rights and racial justice—to support their work on voter rights, a crucial issue right now. Please help me assist this very worthy organization! As an added bonus, my ebook’s 20% off this month too!”
