Joy Wiggins: Bringing Equality and Inclusion Education to Whatcom County

Whatcom Talk

Have you ever had a friend tell you something that so shocked your sense of reality that, in that instant, you could no longer see the world in the same way again?

For Joy Wiggins, of Global Peaceful Paths Equity and Inclusion Consulting, LLC this moment came in college when a black friend from San Antonio told her he thought he needed to leave the university because it was so racist that he feared for his physical safety if he stayed at school. “Where have I been,” she wondered to herself, “while my friend was having cotton plants placed outside of his dorm room?” This became one of many moments that continue to propel Joy in her work to help people connect across racial and gender differences.
