What I Read This Week | 1

what i read this week

I try to keep up with ethical fashion news as much as possible - I even get Google Alerts for the search term, "ethical fashion" - but during the week I read a variety of articles and posts on politics, religion, and science that probably do more to shape my worldview and my perspective on this blog than the ethical fashion news ever will. That's because absorbing information isn't enough for me. I want broad, introspective, nuanced perspectives that make me think.

So, once a week, I'm going to try to post a "What I Read This Week" post full of links to things that I read and enjoyed. I think it'll be a nice way to share interesting information and it'll feel more personal to who I am and what I think about. I encourage you to leave links and start conversations in the comments, as well.

This news has sent shockwaves through the local community, but we've been on edge since last month, when white supremacists led by Richard Spencer showed up to protest the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue downtown wielding torches. There are a few counter protests being organized.
