Patience is a virtue … for whom?

Guest Speaker: Diane Burkholder
In light of our current sociopolitical climate, many of us are asking “What is my role in the fight for social justice?” Some feel overwhelmed; many spring into action, while others have been paralyzed by fear. When we hear messages about patience and “tolerance,” we must ask ourselves, “by whose definition?” How can these notions inhibit substantial change? We have more power than we realize. Let’s talk about it.
