A New Year

In light of the fact that so many people in our country are fearful following the election, True Blue Women plans to develop programs in 2017 that will help us try to understand vulnerable people and learn about their concerns. As we begin thinking about programming, we will be using the umbrella of social justice to learn more and plan for action.

We realize that most of us are fortunate enough to live safe and privileged lives, and while we may be upset about the election, our day to day lives will not be changed. The same cannot be said about the many groups who are vulnerable to discrimination and even hate crimes. We believe we must be sensitive to their concerns and work to allay their fears by speaking out.

THINK  

“Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities.”

  - National Association of Social Workers

 

ACT

“That is the best of what the old heads meant when they spoke of being ‘politically conscious’—as much a series of actions as a state of being, a constant questioning, questioning as ritual, questioning as exploration rather than the search for certainty.”

  - From Between the World and Me, by Ta-Nehisi Coates


HOPE

“There is no justice in America, but it is the fight for justice that sustains you.”

  - Amiri Baraka
