What do we stand for? - A Conversation About #BLM, Protests, Resources, + More
As our country has wrestled with the realities of racism over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been reflecting quite a bit over here and we’re guessing that many of you have too. So let’s talk about it. In this episode, we’re sharing our recent experience at protests, our own journeys/encounters with racism, and what we’re doing now to diversify our networks and stand with the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Plus, we’re diving deep into how being a mother of a child with Down Syndrome affects the way we see racism and oppressive systems.
Please join us for this important conversation then head straight to our show notes for links to books that can help each of us identify privilege and create change. Thanks for being here, friends.
