This show has always been about so much more than the exploration of motherhood. It dissects the complexities of race, class, privilege and acceptance. Now more than ever I hope the series sparks meaningful and necessary discussions. I am so grateful to have worked with this group of incredibly talented and diverse women who were willing to have open and sometimes hard conversations. I hope you all enjoyed it! ???? @littlefireshulu @simpsonstreet @hellosunshine @kerrywashington @liztigelaar @officiallexiunderwood @vancityjax @jadepettyjohn_official @itsmeganstott @gavinklewis @jordanelsass @stevontehart @hulu @pronounced_ing

“Planting a garden means you have hope for the future.“ ???? I read that quote this week and thought: every single person who has made an effort to learn more and do better is investing in our future. I have had many awakening conversations, written emails to leaders, talked to my kids about privilege, signed petitions, donated funds and looked at the ways I have benefited from systemic racism. Trying to see, with new eyes, everything I do not know and can never fully understand. Every single moment of conversation and discussion is an investment in a brighter future. Have you had these moments as well? I hope so. How is your heart? If you feel like sharing, let me know. ❤️
As we celebrate #pride???? this month, one word that keeps coming back to me is persistence. Let's continue to work passionately towards equality for all. I believe in the possibility of a world that is united through love, respect and acceptance. May EVERYONE be welcomed and protected.????????️????(art by @lisacongdon)
Last week I got together (virtually, of course!) with some incredible women to discuss the importance of awareness and action. It was unanimously noted that while we are living through a unique moment in history, it is our acts of service that will garner real change. As actors it’s our duty to accept roles that can create change and to hold the companies we work with accountable for equal representation. I’m so moved by these women who show up in big ways to break stereotypes in our industry– @zendaya, @janellemonae, @jenniferaniston, #HelenaBonhamCarter and @fullyrosebyrne – thank you for leading the way. And thank you to @hollywoodreporter for giving us the opportunity to come together and reflect. Full feature linked in my stories ???? (????: @ramonarosales)
All the PARENTS out there... let’s do this at home summer camp thing! I LOVE camp! I love a slip’n’slide, popsicles at lunch and some friendship bracelets. But my skills are rusty, to say the least. I’m welcoming all craft ideas and backyard games suggestions! ????
