Dear White Women

Jan 2, 2024

Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu! Happy New Year!


We like to split this episode, one we have done every year at this time of year for the last four years, into two parts – reflections and projections. You’ll want to listen so you don’t miss how to stay involved in what’s next for us, the podcast, and 2024 as a whole.


What to listen for:

  • Our history, identities, and what we’ve learned in 2023, including huge successes through the year

  • How to submit ideas for episode topics in 2024 & book us for speaking gigs: contact us at

  • Stats around how Trump is looking increasingly like a dictator and how we must be vigilant in our own communities and have conversations to further our shared democratic goals
