Black Moms On the Front Lines Ep. 2: Kenya Slaughter Never Wanted To Be A Front-Line Worker
Yes, Girl! podcast presents, On the Frontlines - a celebration of Black women who are taking care of our families...and theirs too. These beautiful souls are more than essential, they are powerful. Kenya Slaughter is a mother and Dollar General employee in Louisiana where she is a part of Step Up Louisiana, an organization fighting for dollar store workers and essential workers’ rights. Her New York Times op-ed “I Never Planned to Be a Front-Line Worker at Dollar General” recently caught the nation’s attention. She opened up about just how hard it is for essential workers to take care of themselves and their families and even protect themselves while they’re working. We’re deeply honored to include her in this special series, to zoom in on the stories that are making the biggest differences for all of us during this global pandemic.
