Ep 01: Reluctant Activism w/ Jessica Tabbert
In this episode, our host Justine Evirs has a real and very honest conversation with our guest, Jessica Tabbert. They discuss how Jessica is finding the courage to step up and use her voice and past experiences for change within her circles of friends, family, and community members.
We recorded this episode on June 12th- just two weeks after George Floyd's death. We talk about the emotional rollercoaster we both have been on over the last two weeks but also how we have been following our intuition and stepping up in ways we are both being called to do today.
Jessica shares some very real and very private moments with us that involve, performative allyship, racism, prejudice, and life as a black woman in America. We also talk about oppression, perfectionism, and how people can find the courage to face their fears and walk a path of faith.
