Rebel with a Cause

From Anthony Bourdain to Mark Gonzales to Rep Pramila Jayapal to Justice Sotomayor to Jamia Wilson to America Ferrara…we live amongst great teachers and we are them ourselves.

Eloquent Rage

It’s a new way of being, an eloquent rage, that embodies both resistance and the resilience and moves us in the direction of liberation and wellbeing for everyone.

This moral reckoning. A course correction. And there will be casualties, heartbreak and disappointment.

But what if holding one another accountable IS love?

Far From the Dream

Today we commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's assassination, not by remembering how he died but how he LIVED.

A Glorious Mess

 As we report in this week’s #WELLREAD, finding balance within ourselves and fighting for balance in our systems is a constant and relentless practice. And the burnout is real, especially for those who are most vulnerable.

Joy Doesn't Betray

Joy doesn’t betray but sustains activism. And when you face a politics that aspires to make you fearful, alienated and isolated, joy is a fine initial act of insurrection.-Rebecca Solnit

When students become our teachers

When students become our teachers

There is nothing more humbling and refreshing than taking the seat of the student. Especially for those of us who are considered leaders, organizers, authority figures and coaches. We, likely, need to practice follower-ship the most. And if this month is teaching us anything, it's to lay back and let others lead.

I love women. They have saved my life countless times. Picked me up off the ground when I’ve fallen. Loved me at my messiest. I am who I am because of the women in my life.

How we stay alive

We’re fed up with thoughts and prayers and dead children and teachers sacrificing their lives. All so that our politicians can continue to line their pockets with blood money from the NRA. So we are cutting right to the chase. Since Congress is too incompetent (bought) to take action, we’re taking things into our own hands. And guess who’s leading the charge? Our kids.

Erotica for Feminists

We spend a lot of time here talking about bad news. Because we feel it is important to name what is happening, to not turn away from the discomfort and to confront injustice head on.

Will you be next?

Imagine this happening to you. Imagine everywhere you go the fear of your belonging being questioned. Imagine not feeling safe to go anywhere. Imagine coming home from school or work to find your family members missing. Imagine growing up in a country whose administration has decided that you’re not welcome anymore. THAT is exactly what is at stake for millions of Americans if we don’t pass a #DREAMACTNOW.

Sorry, not sorry

Sorry, not sorry

Trump’s “Sorry, Not Sorry” State of the Union Address was a whole lot of hot air, filled with fantastical claims and empty promises. It was hardly a state of reality.

We're not going back

We're riding another high of pink hats and feminist outcry. This year's march proved that we are not going anywhere soon. The events around the country are estimated to have involved 2.5 million people across the US - a sure sign that the resistance is alive and kicking.
