Dear White Women

Jun 16, 2021

Mamas, here’s a real question for you: How Whyte are your spaces?

We write that word that way because the censors seem to be limiting our ability to write it as w-h-i-t-e without being hurt by the algorithms.

But really, when we talk about a summer of action, we mean starting within your very own spheres of influence.  And as moms, we have a lot of influence.  So let’s start by looking at our own circles!
