DSC is in the News!
Delta Sculling Center was recently mentioned in the news on JL Racing's blog, The Launch. JL Racing is the official partner and outfitter of US Rowing. Please read about Joline's experience with the sport, her pursuit of inclusion, and her mention of DSC among other incredible organizations working day in and day out to achieve similar goals.
Thank you for continuing this conversation! I was so grateful to Megan O’Leary when I first read “I want my sport to look more like my country” and the first time I heard Arshay Cooper say that a sport is not really a sport until it is truly inclusive! So now thank you, to you, Joline, to share an example of how you have been treated as “other” (and I love your acknowledgement that the feelings sparked by feeling “other” were/are “dust-mote” sized compared to what many live with constantly).
But we do all know what it means to be “othered” in some way – we can all find our own examples! And I appreciate that you note: "While I have actively chosen my differences, there are many more who are born into boxes we never even knew existed. Boxes we are only now coming to understand or unpack – requiring more active compassion than ever.
Yes – more compassion than ever — that’s my prayer for 2020 . I love your action list – that will help the prayer come to fruition!
