FAVORITE QUOTE FROM THIS EP //
"Don't underestimate the power of having a place for something...splurge on 'the place for something'...I am one of those people that negotiates in my head why I don't need it, but we're trying to give you permission to buy certain things that could be helpful..." -- Amanda

K's #TIMESUP LEGAL FUND CONTRIBUTION //
At the end of this episode, K mentions the #metoomovement + references #timesup. Here's some more information about the TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund, which she'll be donating 50% of the proceeds from her destash sale and the me too movement that inspired this spark of dialog to begin.
TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund helps to defray legal and public relations costs in select cases for those who have experienced sexual harassment or related retaliation in the workplace. The Fund is housed at and administered by the National Women’s Law Center, an established, national women’s rights legal organization. A network of lawyers and public relations professionals across the country will work to provide assistance to those who have experienced harassment or retaliation. Access to prompt and comprehensive legal and communications help will mean empowerment for these individuals and long-term growth for our culture and communities as a whole.
The National Women’s Law Center will connect individuals who have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace or related retaliation with attorneys who can provide legal assistance including a free initial consultation.
The Me Too Movement In 2006, Tarana Burke founded the me too. movement to help survivors of sexual violence, particularly young women of color from low wealth communities, find pathways to healing. Using the idea of “empowerment through empathy,” the me too. movement was ultimately created to ensure survivors know they're not alone in their journey.
