Bátonnage literally means “to stir up.” So guess what. That is what the Bátonnage Forum is doing over the next several weeks. When the forum was initially launched I was out of town, but I made sure to figure out a way to support. The conference is now going virtual and I am excited for the panel I’m moderating called Stirring It Up: Color, Wine, and Feminism with some amazing women: Kelly Mitchell (@kells01 / @kellymitchellwine), Priyanka French (@priyad87), Shalani Sekhar (@ottavinowines), and Theodora Lee (@theopolisvineyards). Let’s get these tickets sold. But, I am coming with an ASK. There are many women of color in wine hospitality that are out of work. I am asking 25 of my followers to support and buy a contributor ticket so we can support these women in attending the virtual forum ($50). Please see the link in my profile for the Bátonnage Contributor Pledge to buy a ticket. If you have any problems, let me know. Thank you.
