Our “White Women, Can We Talk” event was 11/12/20 from 7:30pm EST to 9pm. Great participation and discussion. The focus of this event was looking back at the election – 55% of white women voted for Trump, 2% more than voted for him in 2016. How is that possible?! And what can we do about it? We also talked about why black and Hispanic men would vote for Trump. Next big thing in Georgia is the runoff elections for two hotly contested Senate races.

The event was moderated by Nselaa Ward, a lawyer who brought NOW to NCCU in around 2002 and went on to intern at the National NOW office while helping to plan for the March for Women’s Lives in 2004. Ms. Ward is now in Georgia. Panelists included
- Triana Arnold James, President of Georgia NOW and Former Candidate for Lieutenant Governor
- Freda Mckee, Missouri NOW President
- Mariquita Anderson, Minnesota NOW President
- Annette Bethel, South Carolina NOW President (joined later)
We got some interesting insights, including from a woman priest. We look forward to the next one.
