Recorded shortly after the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, Michelle Molitor, Founder of The Equity Lab, joins Becky for a vulnerable and raw conversation about the double whammy of racism and the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Little did we know that soon after we recorded this interview, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd’s murders (and now Jacob Blake’s shooting) at the hands of police would spark one of the largest social movements in US history. Michelle reminds us that even through our grief – if we are brave enough – now is the time for us to transform the world forever. How we show up in this moment matters.
