--W-ELCA Blog: Seeing in Living Color - Read this insightful article from a woman of color . . . on why being told by friends that they “don’t see her color” doesn’t come across as a compliment.
--How Can We Recognize Abuse? - “My friend told me about the time her boyfriend screamed so loudly at her that she could feel the sound of his voice brush her cheek. She dismissed his anger at the time and blamed herself for upsetting him.”
