Last weekend, I had the privilege of being an instructor at the Treasure Your Roots Conference here in Oklahoma City. A joint effort between the Oklahoma Genealogical Society, the Black Genealogical Research Group, the Oklahoma Historical Society and the Family History Center of the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the event welcomed over 200 participants to learn about various topics in genealogical research.
Yesterday, I had the privilege of marching with an estimated 12,000 women and men at the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City. As a volunteer working the event, I spoke to over 100 men and women who came to show solidarity for not only women’s rights, but the overarching goal of social justice and civil rights. I spoke with Native American women, Hispanic, Asian, Caucasian, African Americans. I spoke with those from the disability, LGBT, Muslim American communities and Christians, all who felt called to speak out for those marginalized in our society. I spoke with grandmothers, mothers and daughters. And, I spoke with many husbands and fathers who were there to support the women in their lives.
