WREN staff shares anti-racist work with TogetherSC

by WREN Staff on Mar 11, 2021

WREN staff members participated in the Together SC series, Removing Our Blinders. The team presented a Moving from Rhetoric to Action on Thursday, March 4. Our session addressed the ways in which racism and white supremacy affect team members, as individuals, the organization, and our extended network across South Carolina. Thank you to Ann Warner, Ashley Crary Lidow, Courtney Thomas, Kayla Mallett, Maya Ward, and Melissa Moore who shared their personal perspectives on how WREN is shifting to anti-racist internal and external practices as the organization and its network moves forward.
