Raising Our Hands: How White Women Can Stop Avoiding Hard Conversations, Start Accepting Responsibility, and Find Our Place on the New Frontlines
Author: Jenna Arnold

Adult nonfiction book. "White women are one of the most influential demographics in America; we are the largest voting bloc, with purchasing power that exceeds anybody else's and when we unify to demand change, we are a force to be reckoned with. Yet, so many of us sit idly on the sidelines, opting out of raising our hands to do, learn, and engage in ways that could make a difference. Why? White American women are no monolith. Yet, as Women's March national organizer Jenna Arnold has learned over the past few years criss-crossing the US in conversations with white women about their identity and role in the country, we do possess common characteristics; ones that get in the way of us becoming more engaged as citizens." -- from the publisher. Age: Adult.
