Equality Talks Podcast: Zakiya Thomas and the ERA Coalition Movement of Millions

“We are here to change the conversation. The launch of this podcast highlights a shift in the equality movement; we’re no longer being told our stories back to us, we’re telling them ourselves. And we’re lifting up the people and communities that are so often marginalized by misogyny, racism, classism, and bigotry in our society. We’re showcasing our movement of movements, representing millions, and advocating for equality for all people at all levels. And we won’t stop until we get there together.”
