"The function of freedom is to free someone else."
Dear friends of Good Clean Love,
During these incredibly turbulent times I find myself inspired by the quote above by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison. The time has come for real change in this country. 2020 is the year that we reclaim our humanity. At Good Clean Love, we recognize that our mission to increase the experience and awareness of love in the world is grounded in the belief that we are one people. We all rise or fall together.
Ending the four centuries of racism that is the primary wound of our American society can only happen with all of us working together. Former first lady, Michelle Obama said:
"Race and racism is a reality that so many of us grow up learning to just deal with. But if we ever hope to move past it, it can’t just be on people of color to deal with it. It’s up to all of us – Black, white, everyone – no matter how well-meaning we think we might be, to do the honest, uncomfortable work of rooting it out. It starts with self-examination and listening to those whose lives are different from our own. It ends with justice, compassion, and empathy that manifests in our lives and on our streets."
This month we dedicate ourselves to listening and fighting for justice with compassion. It is what real "Love Into Action" looks like.

THE FOUNDATION FOR BLACK WOMEN'S WELLNESS
"LOVE INTO ACTION"
The Good Clean Love mission is clear: "...to increase the awareness and experience of love in the world." We excel at outreach; at talking about culture and societal issues that relate to the world around us. Right now, we're intent on listening and, perhaps more importantly, on taking meaningful action.
In June, as part of our ongoing support for the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight for social justice, we will be making donations to four non-profit organizations that are leading the fight for change. Our fourth featured organization is The Foundation For Black Women's Wellness. The group is a Wisconsin based non-profit committed to mobilizing African American women to pursue and sustain mind-body-spirit wellness, and to raise the visibility and support of Black women’s health as a community and public health priority. There mission is closely aligned with ours: "We will radically transform Black Women’s health by creating a world where Black women and girls live long, happy and thriving lives, defined by healthy minds, bodies and spirits."
