Before we launch into the frenzy of the next week, I wanted to remind everyone to mark your calendars for our next Daring Discussion Potluck at the New Orleans Healing Center on Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018 from 5:30 pm - 7:00pm.
Originating from the Woman’s March, the Healing Center Daring Discussion Potluck is a place for people of all backgrounds and beliefs to come together to discuss issues facing our community. Too often we are stuck "preaching to the choir" and too worried to have honest or inclusive conversations with those with opposing political views. Daring Discussions breaks down those walls and allows challenging yet important conversations to occur with people of all political beliefs and socio-economic backgrounds to occur.
We discuss current political issues facing our country that cause many to feel they should ‘walk on eggshells’ when these topics are brought up. These issues include; sexism, transphobia, racism, environmental needs (climate and science denial), classism, ableism, sexual misconduct, xenophobia, and many more.
Please bring a neighbor/friend,and a dish and become part of this important movement to break down barriers and unite our community.
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." - Winston Churchill
We are powerful,
