Letter from the Editors

“Moving Forward”

We are truly inspired by the unprecedented wave of peaceful protests that has swept the globe over the past 3 weeks. We acknowledge that there’s a long, deep-rooted history of systemic racism and racial violence in this country, and we need to fight against it, now and moving forward.

WAF will continue to learn, listen and speak out against injustice through our platform, social media and podcast. The conversation isn’t over.

In Solidarity,

The WAF team
