In honor of our ten year anniversary, the Zoe Communications Agency is highlighting small business owners - our core client base. This country runs on the backs of small businesses. So, we'll be using our platforms to highlight the work of so many business owners who are creating space + opportunities for others.

This month, in honor of Black History Month, we're celebrating our very own #TeamZoeComm clients who are making black history, every day.

Black Motherhood & Parenting Play Festival

"Black parenthood is often overlooked in our national and artistic conversations and represented without the nuance that white parents and parenting stories often include," Garlia adds, "My journey as a parent has been alongside the growth of my artistic career. Blackboard was founded years before I had children, but remained part of my life, exposing me to the inequities in our field towards parents, BIPOC artists and women. PAAL's entrance into my life has enabled me to find the balance between advocating for others so they are supported in ways I was not and shedding light on the truths in our industry."

Edwin Robinson

Edwin Robinson fundamentally believes in the power of the people.  

 

Edwin works with many organizations and is the former Executive Director of Faith in Texas, but chief among his work is the Faith in Action National Network, where he works with faith leaders, particularly pastors and clergy, building a faithful movement for social justice. He transitioned here from Concord Church, a Missionary Baptist church in Southern Dallas County, to work directly within the community to address and eradicate the pervasive social evils of racial, gender and economic oppression in our community. 

Edwin believes that through the leadership of those who have been made to be “the least of these” we can dismantle the systems of oppression that continue to create the poor and powerless, and ultimately change the public face of faith in Texas.
