Recap of Digital Sisterhood Radio’s 3/7 Episode: Being A Feminist in DC Social Justice Community


The March 7th episode of Digital Sisterhood Radio was a juicy one.  The topic was “Being A Feminist in the DC Social Justice Community.” Guests Greg Bloom, Justin Rodriguez, and Kelli Shewmaker rocked the mic.  See their background information below.

  • Greg Bloom, Development Associate for Marketing and Communications at Bread for the City
  • Justin Rodriguez, Community Organizer for United Community of Earth
  • Kelli Shewmaker, Co-Founder/Organizer of Social Justice Camp DC

Our discussion covered a broad range of feminist topics including:

  • the many definitions of feminism,
  • the importance of creating diverse feminist relationships in the DC social justice community,
  • what it is like to be an Afro-Latino male feminist,
  • white male privilege, and
  • the importance of men stepping up and claiming their feminist identity without fear.
