EEEE! SO glad to be here to learn and connect in allyship and community. My pronouns are she/her, I am here, I am queer, logging in from Chicago. I’m actually at work though, so I will have to turn my camera off now that I said hello. I will participate as much as possible. Thank you for holding space for us :)
