I want to share this article by Salma Haidrani on The Establishment today: The Wellness Movement has a Race Problem. Just read the whole thing. When she says “Cook like me, look like me” I had to stop reading. Just think about what that means when the people we aspire to look like are all white.

Lift Magazine seeks to be an ambassador for change through story telling. It is our mission to both bring awareness to the continued issues facing marginalized individuals and to help educate potential allies as they seek to recognize and work through their privilege. Authors need not necessarily identify with a marginalized population to be considered for publication at Lift. We publish pieces by any individual whose body of work is representative of our philosophy: It's the responsibility of the privileged to quiet their voices when a friend is speaking their truth, to lift their neighbors through acts of respect and solidarity, and to speak out with mind and body when another is not safe to do so. Only through radical inclusivity and intersectional advocacy can we hope to lift each other to a kinder world. View all posts by Lift Magazine
