Karen and Frankie met at a dinner party over ten years ago. “I told my friend when she walked through the door, This is love at first sight,” recalls Frankie, a finance executive and political activist. “I remember thinking this is the woman I’m going to end up with.”
They immediately bonded over both growing up in Los Angeles and a mutual love of art (particularly graffiti and street art).
Today, they have an adorable two-year-old daughter named Sunny. ”Looking back, what really sealed the deal for me was Frankie’s work with community organizing,” says Karen, a model and mother. “We both shared a commitment to social justice.”
Fifteen years later, they still do. During the recent protests, they marched to show their support. But because of COVID-19 they took extra precautions. “We wore masks and practiced social distancing during the protests, but it was important to take to the streets,” Frankie says.
