Voices of Equity – The Privilege of Wanting to “Get Back to Normal”
WHEN WE THINK ABOUT GOING BACK TO NORMAL WHAT WAS THE STATUS QUO?
So many folx are itching to “get back to normal” after over a year of physical distancing and safety precautions brought on by the pandemic. But whose “normal” are we all talking about going back to? What white heteronormative patriarchal culture views as “normal” actually poses a great deal of risk and danger to marginalized communities. Join Zapproved and Cinder as we host Pharoah Bolding about why “getting back to normal” is not something that everyone is looking forward to.
