#DaringDiscussions


A conversation occurred on this Women’s March Facebook page last night. It centered around the race of those who post. The poster then deleted it, which is a shame.  It’s important to have these #DaringDiscussions.  If the truth is being posted, the race behind it shouldn’t matter. The question was asked because someone felt discomfort. A threat to their privilege. We need to address and confront our own privilege, racism, and bias at every turn in order to crush it systemically. If you are hearing this for the first time, the information below will help you have open dialogue on race. Our national Women’s March team has created an outlet for these #DaringDiscussions you can have a neighbor gathering, food is a great tool for getting together.  Do it with purpose!
