The entertainer and mother of two, who founded the We Are Here Movement, shares that her disappointment over the recent presidential election results affect herself as both an individual and a parent.

“It does hurt that racism was not a deal breaker for millions in the election. However, as an artist, I expect to continue to use my voice for things that matter, as I have since the beginning of my career,” she says.

“That won’t change. As an activist, I will continue to fight for what’s right. That won’t change, either. It’s time for all of us to be engaged. As a mother, I am a lioness.”
