A Message From Thanya Iyer

We’re all in different places waking up to the oppressive systems that run this world, flooding every industry and place. A huge power shift needs to take place and I’m so grateful to be able to learn and continue to grow through this time. If you like my music then you’ll know that its all about humanity, self love, and giving love outwards to our community and beyond! Keep learning and growing and have an open mind as we all figure out how to create actionable steps towards reconciliation. Here are some organizations and initiatives to get to know and learn about that are supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and other extremely important initiatives that have continued to make a beautiful impact and are essential to the well-being of our humanity.
