one year after trump’s election, where are we now?

In November of 2016, the election of President Donald J. Trump shook the nation. Supporters speak of strength and passion, but for many, each of the past 365 days were filled with anxiety and uncertainty. Today, the media reports that Americans are more divided than ever. Join us as we reflect on the past 365 days in American policy and discuss the ramifications of a nation divided along political and ideological lines. Together, looking through a social justice lens, we'll explore real strategies for moving our country and community forward in positive and proactive ways!

about the program

“I believe we can change the world if we start listening to one another again. Simple, honest, human conversation.” Margaret J. Wheatley

Do you have a safe space to talk about how racism and sexism impact you and the people you care about?

As a nation, we’ve experienced horrific events within the last year that have forced us to acknowledge that sexism and racism are very much ingrained in our society. From white nationalists marching in Charlottesville, VA to Hollywood’s sexual abuse victims finding their voice, men and women across the country are starting to engage in conversations about injustices faced by many women and people of color in our country.

Let’s Talk About It is a guided conversation series that invites men and women in Central Ohio to explore current events in news and popular culture from a social justice lens. We’ll discuss practical approaches to advocacy, ally ship and solidarity that you can begin to use in your everyday life.
