Female Firestarters Speak: Diverse Reactions to Black Lives Matter Protests

The core of the United States is shifting and at its center is the #BlackLivesMatter movement. But what do women across the country think about the movement and how are they part of the change they want to see? Terri Broussard Williams sits down with four female firestarters who are on the frontlines of social change in the latest episode of #MovementMaker: The Podcast. These women are leaders who are truly turning moments into movements in the world today. Each guest faces different challenges, marks a different place on the map, and offers a different lens to view social change. You'll even get a sneak peek into the firestarter formula. Listen in as these “woke women” talk about how they make a difference and inspire you to do the same. About The Host: Terri Broussard Williams believes that leaders turn moments into movements. She also believes that anyone can be a great leader. Terri explains that movements can be as big as passing a law, building a church, or starting a nonprofit. They can also be as small as giving to someone in need, showing kindness, or helping students at a school get gym equipment. This podcast is here to help you with the HOW and WHY people build movements. Terri breaks it down each time using the #FirestarterFormula which is: find your cause, build a community to help, communicate your vision, and work to see change. In each episode of this podcast, we’ll take a look at one of the four pillars of the #MovementMakerTribe including philanthropy, policy change, movement-building, and the movement from within.
