Stand Up and Speak!
September 27, 2018
There are moments in our lives when we are called to speak. There are moments in time when groups of us are called to take a stand. It might be easier to be silent and walk away. Today was not one of those days. This is the day that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford took the stand and faced the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee and told her story. She faced her abuser Judge Brett Kavanaugh. She told her truth.
Today was also the day of the 20th Women United luncheon in Denver where 1000 women gathered to celebrate the power of women uniting for good to change lives in their community. How fitting that the keynote speaker, Irin Carmon, the co-author of The Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, told Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s life story of dissenting for change in her life. It was a day to honor every woman who ever took a stand to help another human being have a better life.
At this luncheon, the 2018 Frances Wisebart Jacobs award was given Betsy Wiersma, founder of Camp Experience. Fifteen years, and a million dollars for charity later, Betsy’s organization still continues to unite women for good. This sisterhood is contagious.
