Reflecting on Harmony’s experience, what are your initial thoughts on what she shares? What sticks out to you? What are your questions?
Harmony talks about her desire and need for connection and respect and inability to convey that to those who may see her on the street. Thinking about your own life, is there a moment when you have felt similarly? Have you ever had basic needs that you couldn’t convey to those around you? How were you able to convey your needs, or, what do you wish you had been able to convey at the time?
What are the expectations you had for Harmony’s story that were confronted as you listened to her? How can you and others confront these biases to provide people like her a truly open space to share their stories?
