Amplify Black Voices

Posted by Corrie Bradley on

As a company founded on the values of wellness, sexual health, and feeling good in your body, we at Lark recognize the barriers Black womxn face in accessing this industry and we seek to fight this systemic exclusion. We’ve compiled an (extremely in-comprehensive) list of Black educators, therapists, activists, artists, organizations, and businesses as a first step towards amplifying, supporting, and highlighting these Black voices. Please let us know who else we should include.
