How We Show Up: Reclaiming Family, Friendship and Community
“It seems counterintuitive that living the “good life”—the well-paying job, the nuclear family, the upward mobility—can make us feel isolated and unhappy. But in a divided America, where only a quarter of us know our neighbors and everyone is either a winner or a loser, we’ve forgotten the key element that helped us make progress in the first place: community. In How We Show Up, I show that what separates us isn’t only the ever-present injustices built around race, class, gender, values, and beliefs, but also our denial of our interdependence and need for belonging. In response to the fear and discomfort we feel, we’ve built walls, and instead of leaning on each other, we find ourselves leaning on concrete.”

Please visit HERE to order the book. If you need support ordering a book, please reach out to Katie Maxwell or Liz Archerd. Our chapter can provide some financial assistance.

We look forward to seeing you on Zoom!
