Mom Panel: #TheOverlooked

This week I was invited to join two incredible moms – Isis Spann and Torlecia Bates – to tell our stories of pandemic learning and how we are part of The Movers, The Missed, and The Muted that represent #TheOverlooked.

I hope you will take the time to listen to the entire segment, but if you can only listen to one part, fast forward to Torlecia’s final panel remarks at minute 28:31 because they are everything and more…

“Don’t sit back, don’t be silent…”

“You go to war for your kids, whatever that means. You show up.

“We don’t have another moment to wait. NOW is the time!”

Torlecia Bates ~ Mother of Three ~ Ages 3 to 11
