What Would Wonder Woman Do?

Hey, guys – originally we had another post scheduled but can’t pretend for it to be business as usual after the horrific events at Charlottesville. We need to address and talk about what happened – we must take sides. Silence only normalize this type of appalling racist rhetoric. We are horrified that we are facing a fight that our grandparents fought in WWII. If you follow us on twitter you know we have been very vocal about the events as well as the President remarks and his refusal to condemn the white supremacists.

Often times when events like this happen it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or that there is a lot of evil in the world.  But we are more than happy to take a stand and be very clear that we are the United States of America – and our diversity is what makes us great! We are sharing a few ways to help make a difference and fight against this type of racial prejudice.

3 Ways to Help after Charlottesville

3 ways to do that:

1. Donate to help the 19 victims that were injured in the domestic terrorist attack on Charolttesville

2. Volunteer & Support organizations like #ACLU, ##BLM#PlannedParenthood, and the #NAACP

3. Hold your elected officials accountable for their statements and actions on condemning white supremacy and the violence in Charlottesville – Call, Write, Vote!


Trump’s moral void on denouncing Nazi and the alt-right shames the great office that he holds and what America was founded on. We wanted to share the appalling comments from the President as well as a twitter thread we feel breaks down what is the framework behind his less-than Presidental behavior.

This is also a recommendation we can get behind:

So we will fight back to ensure Nazi terrorism never becomes mainstream – never becomes an accepted reality. Prejudice is a learned skill and something  that can be undone. Avoiding this uncomfortable dialogue only allows a vacuum for this type of rhetoric to grow. So embrace the hard conversations and remember to be extra kind in the days ahead. When things seem dark we like to think about our favorite Wonder Woman quote:

“Only love will truly save the world”

    This post reminds me of MLK’s quote – “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that” Thanks for sharing this post. It’s very timely. We need to spread love now, more than ever.
