We need to talk about:

 

So thankful for everyone in that thread sharing their experience. Microagressions like these are bullshit and we can’t accept them. If someone tells you this happened, listen to them. It’s a real issue that happens in every division of the derbyverse. Talk with your derby league/circle about how to call this out and how to correct it.

 

Weekend Scores:

With the release of the new WFTDA stats site we’re going to try things a little differently this week. They don’t currently have a way to sort by tournament, so check out the full results page for this weekend!


 

Fundraiser Highlight: Help Nani (Wendy Jones) during her recovery!

 

“Long Island Nani (Wendy Anna Jones) was injured during a roller derby practice on June 12th. She suffered an open tibia fracture, which required surgery that same night. Her recovery is going to take a bit of time, and it is unknown how long it will take her to return to work. Unfortunately, Nani recently started a new job and does not have paid time off. “
