Daring Discussions launches on Mother’s Day 2017 in memoriam of the original intent of the holiday: a day for women and mothers to work together toward peace. In the shadows of the Civil War, and the sin of slavery, women came together to begin to heal a nation. The original intent of the day was to engage women in deliberations toward peace. Laying the groundwork for the abolitionists and suffrage movement. Our work is not yet finished.
Daring Discussions uplifts the work of mothering and calls on ALL those who nurture to continue the work of restoring the fabric of our human relationships. Carrying the torch of those from the past who worked toward peace, we hope this Toolkit helps you navigate Daring Discussions that will bring us closer to a more just country and world.
In honor of our shared American history to engage in difficult conversations for the sake of our collective advancement and to bring us back to the original intention of Mother’s Day, we have built a Toolkit to help those interested in working toward a common ground for the betterment of all.
Thank you, in advance, for being brave and vulnerable. This unique time in history requires that we dig deep into our ancestral roots for inspiration and look to both our friends, and our perceived foes, for the guidance to navigate the collective obstacles we all face.
