Everyday Lemonade

We don't wait for life to give us lemons to make lemonade...


About Us

Through a series of portraits, interviews, and events, The Everyday Lemonade features and connects inspirational women of color who are creatives, entrepreneurs, or simply magic makers in their career or passion because representation matters. We aim to inspire people -- particularly women of color -- to discover, pursue, & thrive in their passion & purpose. Let's make lemonade. 🍋
