One thought on “White Evangelical Trump Supporters, Pt 1

  1. I’m sorry I’m late to tuning into this, but I’m loving what you’re doing. Since the election I’ve been politically activated and growing in my awareness and engagement with civic issues as they effect others. Can’t wait to hear more.
    *Also miss being neighbors with you and J 🙂
