Do you know any folks who are protesting? Most of my friends who are either have become unemployed or are passionate enough to be taking time off work. I’ll be out there this weekend. It’s time for those of use who are comfortable to stand with those who have been oppressed for decades.

Also, college students just finished their (online) semester and most haven’t started internships, so they’re in a perfect in-between period to dedicate their time and energy towards helping the cause

Hey y’all. Third year associate at a boutique PI firm. I am the only female and only associate of a firm of four other male partners.

We’ve also recently gotten a new young female firm manager who they treat like gold. Is paid only $10k less than me without a law or college degree, twenty days off a year, . . .
