Wine Down is and always will be a place for people to gather—in good times and bad—and feel welcome, comfortable, and appreciated. But we can do more. As minority women business owners, we want to help create a world that values, protects, and champions women, people of color, LGBT communities, immigrants, and everyone in between. Together we can do this.
Though still disappointed by the election results, we also choose to be inspired. We choose to be active examples of everything we value and admire most about our choice for President, Hillary Clinton: fearless, relentless, inclusive, smart—what some might consider to be a little bit nasty.
We planned to celebrate our first woman President on Saturday, 11/12. While that didn't happen, we held a Planned Parenthood fundraiser with a local woman winemaker and will continue to do more events like this in the future. It’s only a small step, but it’s a start. We are all valuable and powerful, and together we can do anything. So, let’s start doing.
We hope to share a glass of wine with you soon. Thank you for being part of Wine Down.
