Hi! My name is dionne johnson.
Fighter for social justice. People connector. Unfiltered. Unapologetic.
In the midst of social injustice, inequality, poverty and homelessness, I'm here to have a no nonsense conversation with you about social issues, politics, health and wellness news, effective parenting strategies, what’s going on in LGBTQ circles, and so much more!
We can sugarcoat it, beat around the bush or simple ignore what's going on, but I strongly believe that if we don't call out wrong things will never change. It's time we stand up, start taking care of each other and shout for all to hear that we're here to fight for change!
Politics run through my veins. It was an enormous pleasure and an honor to work to get President Obama elected in 2012, and to support Hillary Clinton during the elections in 2016. EMILY's list and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) play a huge part in my career.
Besides that, I've spent the last decade working with and for organizations that stand up for change and better living conditions. I've worked closely with the NAACP, Planned Parenthood, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Doctors Without Borders and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Monterey Bay. I've also had the opportunity to work with environmental organizations like Sierra Club, the Art Institute of Chicago, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and Greenpeace.
All these experiences, plus my life experiences as a proud black gay woman, a mother of 3 sons and a grandmother of 7 grandchildren, are the perfect ingredients for a show that informs, entertains and encourages to take action.
Maya Angelou once said “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. I feel that so strongly and I am here to send out the message that we were put on this earth to be each other's blessings. A beautiful addition to that is what Martin Luther King Jr. said: “I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down other-centered men can build up”.
With that being said, the only thing that's left to say is this. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step. If you believe in fighting injustice, inequality, homelessness and poverty, please tune in on Facebook or watch my shows on YouTube. Join the conversation, share your ideas. I can't do this alone. Will you walk the steps with me?
From my heart to yours,
