PINK SUGAR + LEMONGRASS
Feminist and Anti- Racist work is tough. “It requires that you be willing to devote a great part of your life to it and that you be willing to suffer alienation and self-disruption.” - Lugones and Spelman
This candle was crafted in the vein of disrupting through conversation, an ode to the work of Jen Fry. Sweet pink sugar and airy lemongrass combine to create these juicy fresh accords. Notes of orange, cotton candy and powder are layered with citrus oils for a bright and fresh herbal delight.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
JenFryTalks is a social justice education firm that uses conversation to educate and empower those within athletics through an anti-racist lens on issues of race, inclusion, intersectionality, diversity, and equity.
Jen Fry is a native of Arizona, a Division II athlete, and veteran volleyball coach with over 15 years of experience at the collegiate level with coaching stints at Elon University, the University of Illinois (2011 National Runner-Up), Washington State University, and Norfolk State University. She turned social justice educator when she realized there was a need for educating not only our student-athletes of all ages, but the administration, staff, and coaches who train them through an antiracist lens on issues of race, inclusion, intersectionality, diversity, and equity. Lastly, she is working on her Phd in Geography at Michigan State University.
A portion of the proceeds from this candle will be donated to Lights Out Volleyball, an organization aimed providing equal access opportunities to the sport of volleyball and advocating for athletes often overlooked, raising the human consciousness of sports.
