    Race For Justice with The Future Ancestors

    Race For Justice with The Future Ancestors

    On this episode of The Run Wave Podcast, Kim is chatting with Nubia Ali and Jamia Fletcher, founders of the Louisville, KY based group Future Ancestors. These teenagers will impress you with their quest to keep Breonna Taylors name alive, their fight for equality & LGBTQ+ equal rights.
    On June 18, 2022 they are putting on their very first road race titled Race For Justice.  This race is designed by a woman led group, takes place in Louisville KY, and is to honor the memory of Breonna Taylor who was brutally murdered in her home by the police on March 13, 2020.
    I encourage you to support these Future Ancestors by being apart of their journey.  If you are in Louisville, come out and support them on June 18th, or register for the virtual race and run on your side of the world.

Jaydagrl ,

Awesome Podcast!

I’m new to running & your podcast. Started June 14, 2020 at just a mile a day so I’m very fresh. I enjoy listening to your podcast & actually hearing and seeing people who look like me enjoy the sport as well.

Enjoy a fresh mew perspective

I’ve enjoyed most of the episodes now. Just listened to the guys from Detroit and Run313. I’m from the west side of Michigan and enjoyed hearing the locals and there success . I come from a company who is diving deeply into I&D and I need to educate myself more on culture and different views. Thanks
