Join FearLess At Kidz Kickback Back 2 School Back Pack Drive
If there is one thing that our community strives to achieve, it is to help women and gender minorities through full-circle mentorship. This can take a variety of forms, but one of our favorites involves sponsoring other community partners and giving back. Indeed, it has been a little while since our last workshop or event, as we took off the month of July to refresh, rejuvenate, and program for the remainder of our first official year as a nonprofit. Now, we are back to kick it into gear. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX community shares an amazing upcoming event that we encourage you to check out, and we hope to see you there!
Support Networks And Social Capital
Obtaining your goals, pursuing ambitions, and taking strides toward personal growth are all forms of progress that are influenced by your mental health. Not only is it important to prioritize your mental health, but it is important to recognize that your social health has an influence as well. Indeed, at times it can feel as though it is just you against the world, and in some instances, it might very well be. With social supports to assist you, however, you experience greater levels of success. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX community explores the value in building social capital through networking, and discusses the importance of establishing a healthy support network.
Spring Cleaning And Mental Health: Clearing The Mind Of Weeds

How COVID-19 Affected Women+
Looking back on the progress we have made thus far is not only incredible to see, but really goes to show that we as women and gender minorities are capable of a lot. We are resilient, outspoken, and always ready to stand up for what is right. Even still, global pandemics have a way of taking us all down a peg or two. While it may seem like something that is getting farther and farther behind us, there is no argument that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still being felt today. In fact, we are still falling ill and combatting variants that seem to pop up every few months, and even more social issues are being brought to light. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX community takes a look at the many ways COVID-19 affected and continues to impact women+.
What We’ve Been Up To: First Quarter Recap
These first few months of 2022 have felt like they’ve flown by, and if it is how the saying goes, that must mean we have all been having fun! Indeed, it may be only the end of March, but we hit the ground running with a host of amazing events, workshops, and fun-raisers to kickstart this year.

In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX community takes a look back at what we’ve accomplished this quarter and provides some insight into what the next quarter will look like.
Significant Women+ In History You Should Know
It goes without saying that much of the voice we have as women in the United States today is a direct result of various contributions from women and gender minorities throughout our history. As Women’s history month comes to a close, it is only natural that we highlight a few important women+ in history and their contributions to women and gender minority rights in the United States. After all, these strong individuals took those first strides for us so that we could run, and we still have much work to do in terms of pursuing progress. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX community highlights a few important ladies that you might not know much about, and shares the amazing things that they accomplished or continue to strive toward.

Part of becoming FearLess involves taking ownership in one’s life and striving to achieve greater growth, but it is also important to recognize the role we play in each other’s FearLess journey. Indeed, helping others access resources and acquire knowledge and skills that they might not otherwise be able to is the driving force behind the mission, and that is why our community is so unique. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX community takes a look at the way your mental health influences various aspects of your life, and how women+ can benefit from additional support and resources.
Your Vote Matters For Gender Minority Issues
Growing up, you might have come from a household in which politics was not a topic often discussed. As you grew older and obtained an understanding of your place in the community and the needs of others, it became pretty apparent that the United States is not as ahead of its time as the education system might have previously had you believe. In fact, there is significant work to be done in terms of gender equality, minority rights, and a host of other issues. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX community will discuss the need for your vote when it comes to speaking out against racist, sexist, and ableist policies, and how you can spark change for gender minority concerns.
Challenges For Women In The Workplace
It goes without saying that equality in and of itself has been a goal for a variety of marginalized groups for centuries. Even with forward strides such as the abolishment of slavery, the women’s suffrage movement, and obtaining LGBTQIA+ rights, there is still an ever-growing list of work that needs to be done. When looking at women in the workplace, it goes without saying that gender equity has taken steps backward, especially in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic. In today’s blog, the Dallas, TX community at FearLess Dallas discusses some of the challenges women are facing in the workplace, as well as how our community can help.
We Are Ready To Help You Become FearLess!
It’s been a long time coming, and I am finally excited to share with you the launch of FearLess Dallas – a non-profit I started to provide full-circle mentorship for women+ in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. At FearLess we are building a community of resilient, self-reliant, and resourceful women and gender minorities through training, education, and one on one mentorship by qualified professionals. We meet women+ where they are, providing individual and group curriculums that give women and gender minorities the skills to implement their life’s blueprint.
