Educate

Supporting women and mothers is not enough. It’s far from enough. Ingrid & Isabel commits to taking steps beyond visual diversity and advocacy, beyond pregnancy and motherhood, and beyond marching and demonstrating. We will educate ourselves on race, white privilege and the deep-seated inequities Black individuals face. Join us in the path towards a more informed and educated world. Submit below to add valuable resources to this list.
