The second of this year's Current Research on Women and Gender (CROW) events features Victoria DeFrancisco and Melissa Payne will presenting "A Story of Relationship as a Strategy for Racial Battle Fatigue." Race relations in the United States continue to be a real issue that has challenged people’s attempts to enter into authentic relationships. In our presentation and book chapter we share the ways in which two people found the courage to continue to reach for authentic relationship in the midst of personal and institutional struggles against racism. Our presentation is intended to share our story, but also to empower others to reach for authentic relationships in their lives. CROW events are free and open to the public.
