tashira, here: florida-born, dc-based attorney, social justice activist and fashion lover. i started politics and fashion in 2011 as a creative outlet to express my love for fashion and interior decor, as well as my ever-evolving socio-political analysis. as a community organizer, i was stuck feeling like a contradiction among my more narrowly “political” peers because of my love for pretty things, and i spent lots of time feeling torn between two worlds. ultimately, i decided that my passion for social justice does not exclude my femininity. while politics and fashion are seemingly disparate concepts, i use this space to explore their intersection, especially as it relates to black women.
i hope you enjoy this space as much as i enjoy creating it.
