Anti-racism, White Fragility, Microaggressions and Liberals
Today we are talking with the founders of the group True Blue Progressives.
It was created out of the necessity of having space where the voices of BIPOC women are amplified and emotional labor is honored and respected. The white women included are committed to the dismantling of white supremacy and learning to walk in anti-racism through listening and learning from women of color. It is a “brave space” that leads with truth - while also protecting our BIPOC members.
The conversation is enlightening for every progressive person out there who thinks that they do not have racism in them. We ALL have work to do because it has been baked into every system in our country. So buckle in as we tackle hard things.
