She said: "I know we have shared experiences in being in interracial marriages and you know raising small children who are of mixed race and how that plays into that ... I think it’s gonna help a lot of people to better understand why we’re all so passionate about this, but mostly just thank you for doing the work and leading the way and finding solutions, not just for all of us, but for your little girl, for our little boy, for all of us. So we really appreciate it, thank you."

Her mantra is shared by Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who has three-year-old Alexis Olympia with wife Serena Williams.
Speaking in a joint discussion as part of the TIME100 Talks, Alexis added: "And I thought about the role that it plays and the role that all social media companies play in our society and the world that it's shaping for everyone including people like my daughter, like my wife. I knew that I had a responsibility to be able to answer her when she asked me in 10 years - when she's a snarky teenager - you know, what I did to help be a part of making things better for her ... I've had so many moments in my life where I was given the benefit of the doubt, where I never felt unsafe, where I always felt heard, where I did not realise until I was in a relationship with someone who has achieved as much as she has and still regularly deals with this in painful frustrating ways. And as a husband you just get outraged, and then especially now in the role as a father, I just can't help but want to create a world that is just fair to my daughter. And I know that that's lofty, but it's a thing worth - worth striving toward."
