Law of Attraction: How It Changed My Life

Just Mercy and BLM! (all proceeds of all my episodes donated; it's free to listen!)
If you listen to any episodes of my podcast, I'm donating all my proceeds to the Innocence Project (the black vision collective doesn't need donations anymore so i'll be donating to whatever organization needs money!)! All the money I've made since starting my podcast and will make is all going to them as well! Thank you all for listening. After watching Just Mercy I got a wake up call about a lot of ideas related to the BLM movement, including the lengths for justice, what defunding the police really means, and the difference that having resources does.  If I say anything politically incorrect OR ignorant, please let me know. I am learning everyday but I cannot learn without making mistakes. I try to be as educated as possible but if I say something wrong please dm me on instagram at womanjari or on my youtube channel which is Manjari G! I really appreciate it
