8 Inspirational Wellness Quotes For You By BIPOC Women Entrepreneurs
July is a call to action month. For 31 days, the National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month aims to raise awareness of a variety of mental health issues faced by Black, Indigenous and People of Color.
Black women entrepreneurs, for example, are among those who equally deserve to be seen, heard and supported.
