Be Your Biggest Advocate
There are so many articles out there telling us how to be better advocates for others. Rarely are we reminded that we should also be advocates for ourselves.

Nothing Even Matters
For the past few months, I kept wondering why I felt indifferent to so many things that used to matter to me. Well, I had an epiphany and as Lauryn Hill said, "nothing even matters at all."

BLACKTOBER: Let's Talk About The Projects
Did you know that the federal government used policies to segregate America back in the 1930's? By building housing projects, redlining neighborhoods, and denying Black and Brown people access to housing, government agencies shaped America's neighborhoods as we know them today. But how can we break the negative stigma surrounding housing projects today? Also, what can be done about improving the living conditions of tenants now?
