Being Beautiful Together

Dec 18, 2017

By Trenda Loftin, Youth Programs Educator 
& Jason Papallo, Marketing & E-Communications Specialist

“Standards of beauty” have been, and always will be, toxic forms of oppression that keep most down. This is one example of how we can begin shifting the negative narratives that come from society’s “standards of beauty.” Actively uplifting each other helps others see why they're beautiful!

When we are born, we innately value justice and fairness. Prejudice, however, is learned and no one is immune. So how do we fight discrimination, bias and bigotry? How do we build communities that are inclusive and just for all? For 90 years the National Conference for Community and Justice has been answering these questions. This is the story of breaking bias—one unlikely friendship at a time. What can be learned can be unlearned.
