The style of empathy

Micah Kessel wants to change the way we do DEI

“These New
Balances were the favorite of someone who showed me indescribable love and rightfully ended it after the worst lie I’ve ever told. They connect me to sadness, loss, and needing to move on. But also, I chose these. So I wear them, and live with all those choices,” says Micah Kessel. Photo: Tristan Williams
