Hey, White friends.
I know you’re in shock in the wake of this election. Consider buying a cute journal and some colored pens and start an Ally Journal: a place to keep track of what you’re doing and what you haven’t done yet, on your journey to becoming a fully realized intersectional feminist. It’s also a great place to work through the complex emotions we’re gonna feel on this journey, instead of disrupting conversations with or getting defensive at the people we’re trying to do better by!
I’m not kidding. Why deny the appeal of cute notebooks and pens and lists now? OMG, We use them for so much when we decide to do better but are overwhelmed by how to start tackling a HUGE problem. We also get to use our Pinterest boards while figuring out how to keep track. Bonus!
Journals, we use them for so much, why not?
