Hidden Values and How to Talk About Politics
In this fast-paced hands-on workshop, we'll alternate between all-group feedback and small-group practice as we learn more about connecting the dots between values and actions, and why people we love or respect hold (or seem to hold) such radically different ideas.
Learn insights about the hidden motivations driving values-based decisions
Connect the dots between values, expressed beliegs and actions
Begin conversations with people who express different values
Find common ground that begins to open up deeper conversations about the values we share
We're offering "Hidden Values and How to Talk About Politics" twice in March:
This is part of our "one million women" initiative in 2018. Men are welcome to join us!
March for Black Women Houston - This Saturday, March 3
We are participating in the M4BWHou and invite you to join us. The M4BWHou organizers use their website to explain their purpose and how allies can support them: please visit their site to learn more. Here are details on how to connect with Houston Women's Marchers before and during M4BWHou.
Dear Houston Women March friends, volunteers, and marchers: We will gather to walk to the Black Women's March to celebrate and honor black women. Houston Women's March as an organization will be there to respectfully support the event following the organizer's guidance for allies/accomplices. We will carry signs that express we believe, trust and support Black Women / Black Trans Women, as requested by the organizers. See suggestions below and at https://www.m4bwhou.com/allies/
We will gather at Elizabeth Baldwin Park (corner of Elgin and Chenevert) and walk 4 blocks to Emancipation Park (corner of Elgin and Hutchins)
The first group will walk at 8:10 AM to attend the Allies training at 8:30 AM
The section group will walk at 9:30 AM to join the celebration before it begins at 10:00AM
In keeping with the M4BWHou organizers' intent, we are not making a statement or creating attention for ourselves, so we do not plan to bring a banner or wear our t-shirts. Rather, please wear something showing solidarity, or no statements. We will have HWM logo stickers for you to wear to help Marchers locate each other.

Women's rights is not only an abstraction, a cause; it is also a personal affair. It is not only about us; it is also about me and you. Just the two of us.
