The 2020 election is fast approaching and the stakes are really high. While voting, of course, isn’t the only tool of participation and intervention, it is an essential part of our democracy.
In the wake of the 2016 election, our guest, Jenna Arnold, hosted listening circles around the country to understand why 53% of white women voted for Trump. She wrote a book that captured those learnings called Raising Our Hands: How White Women Can Stop Avoiding Hard Conversations, Start Accepting Responsibility, and Find Our Place on the New Frontlines. This podcast is particularly for white women who are reckoning with their complicity and how to show up in this critical political moment to make things right.
