Here’s what’s buzzin’ with Member Mary Kay F.

1. Where did you meet your husband? I met my husband on the city bus when we were taking the bus to college. My husband jokes, that if something happens to me, then he will get a new bus schedule and find a new woman. 

2. Who would you like to have lunch with? I would like to hear Jeff Cavins speak. He talks about the Bible and he is very inspirational.

White Fragility

Written by Bonnie Hansen

    I feel compelled to write this following my watching a TED Talk by Robin DiAngelo on her book: White Fragility. I have come to see my defensiveness when thinking about my own racism. "All white people are racists." If that statement made you angry, you must think about why. My own reaction is typically, I am not a racist because I grew up in a racially diverse community, I lived in an upper-middle class neighborhood, we had upper-middle class black neighbors, I went to a diverse high school, I notice when black people are omitted from advertisements, groups, gatherings, and large events such as baseball games, plays, or state fairs, it bothers me that NHWT has no black members, it bothers me that the school I work in has a very small number of black educators despite the fact that most of the students are black, and finally, I have been upset by the black people who have been killed or hurt by police and have been incarcerated unfairly (or held unfairly due to lack of qualified representation). I remain part of the problem. We all were horrified by the public murder of George Floyd, and many of us are looking at what we can do to stop the problem of racism because of it. The question I have to ask myself is why did it take this public disrespect for human life to wake me up? This has been going on for a long time. What I can do is inform myself with the many, many resources that exist. I can also commit to challenge racism when I see it in myself or others. Click here for the handout from DiAngelo.

An August Message from President Kathy

 Hello lovely ladies, 

I would like to thank each and every one of you for rising to the occasion. Especially during this challenging season of Covid-19. You have kept our chapter going with walks for health, social gatherings, and even outside meetings. These are only a few things out of many! I could not be prouder to represent such a fine group of Women. Keep up the good work. 

Kathy N., NHWT President
