The election of Donald Trump inspired us to turn Bearded Fruit into something more than just a podcast. We decided to make it a tool to take a stand.
In 2017, we are using the podcast as a foundation for a broader initiative we’re calling “Fruit Stands.” We’re creating simple actions that you can do in your community to further the values of justice, fairness, diversity and equality. Through these actions, you can bring the conversations we’re having on the podcast into your community. And through those expanded conversations, we can build coalitions of like-minded people making change at the local level.
If you listen to the podcast, you know we believe that justice is intersectional. That’s why our Fruit Stands will address issues beyond the LGBT community (things like race, ability, gender, ect.) and will approach activism as an intersectional pursuit.
