Wassup, #ZoraTribe?

First and foremost, let me welcome some of the newcomers to the Zora's List newsletter! 



Whether you subscribed online or opted in through your attendance at one of our recent events (Healing Cures, Community Dinner, WoCO Summer Market) - welcome!

The goal of this newsletter is to help women of color in Central Ohio "live more fully, more courageously, and more joyfully in their day to day lives and local community. So excited to officially have you as part of that mission! 

Now, back to regularly scheduled programming!

This email was definitely meant to go out on Monday but life had other plans this week. (More on that in an upcoming note.) Despite the delay, there is too much happening this week and weekend for me to not hit your inbox with suggestions on where you should spend some of your time and coins this weekend!

See below for ten events happening around town either created by us, for us, or in desperate need of some melanin magic sprinkled through the audience!
