Dear White Women

Oct 28, 2020

Are any of you feeling like we are - maybe a little anxious now seven months into COVID with various degrees of lockdown, with a very uncertain election layered on top of that?

If you’re listening to this live, we have one week until Nov 3 election day; we may have a week or several weeks more until we find out the results of that presidential election.  

We are bringing you a few tools to cope with election anxiety.
