#TBGFW19: LIVE IN COLOR | Helping black women find their innerG (ˈ/enərjē/) Listen up, you have a story to tell - and the world needs to hear it. Colorful stories of triumphs, failures, love found, love lost and childhood experiences that have and continue to shape how we think, feel, live and love. These years of experiences - and trauma - increase our risks of disease and death. According to researchers from the CDC and Kaiser Permanente, untreated trauma significantly increases the risk of 7/10 of the leading causes of death in the United States doubling and quadrupling the chances of a person acquiring the disease(s). So, it’s time to speak your truth and tell your story. It’s time to rid yourself of the hurt, pain and trauma. Through the #LiveInColor workshop you will use a variety of writing and interactive activities to open your truth Chakra (known as your throat Chakra), deal and heal from trauma and use your newfound freedom to examine how your life experiences have shaped who you are and how speaking your truth can help you move forward living life in COLOR. This two-hour workshop is guaranteed to open your eyes, mind and heart to finding your truth and living it unapologetically. By the conclusion of the workshop you will walk away with a new understanding of your experiences and will make a commitment to #LIVEINCOLOR. TICKETS for ‘LIVE IN COLOR’: HERE

TeamBlkGrlFly is a platform created to celebrate, highlight and uplift Black women, encouraging them to show up as their genuine selves in every area, all the time. Via various programming and events, including the annual happening, 'A Seat at the Table Awards' (ASATA), TeamBlkGrlFly is changing the narrative surrounding women of color. More, this collective stands to play a key role in unifying and healing our community, shattering stereotypes and seeks to inundate work and play spaces with positivity.

Truth is, we are larger than what mainstream media mentions and, frankly, it’s our turn to share our experiences, our stories and our badassery as we are apart of a beautiful, varied and resilient tribe.

There are so many women of color that make contributions in their respective cities, but they don’t get recognition. We wanted to provide an opportunity for the sistas who aren’t in the establishment to get recognized for the work they put in daily. We should know these sistas because their contributions are helping make us stronger as a people and a community.
— Brandi Williams, APR (Partner)

Davita Galloway and Brandi Williams, APR, created the 'A Seat At the Table Awards,' or ASATA, to honor the contributions of black women in local communities. With unconventional award categories such as 'She is Her, She is Dope, She Got Juice, and She is Sincere' to name a few, ASATA is providing the opportunity for us to finally be recognized and have our say! Join us and have a seat, sis!
