She is the catalytic creator of SHETalks WETalk Race Talks for Women and WETalks for Women of Color. Catrice is strong medicine and serves up hard truths necessary to eliminate the lethal infection of racism from humanity. She realizes that her approach may be rebuked and her flavor undesired.

She is unmoved by naysayers and does her work authentically and unapologetically with a revolutionary spirit and believes that justice is love.
