Over the weekend, an 18-year-old white supremacist drove for hours to a neighborhood grocery store in Buffalo, where he shot 13 people, specifically targeting Black people. Ten died. [1] Our hearts ache for the victims and families of the Buffalo shooting and for the city itself. Our hearts break for the Black community, which once again has been targeted in a racially motivated mass shooting.

Since then, we harnessed that energy...

Their only goal: to strike down Roe v. Wade, decided in 1973, and strip women of their human right to bodily autonomy. Now more than ever, we need your donations and your support!

I took a page out of my own book! The Human Herd: Awakening Our Natural Leadership was released into the wild last month. It was terrifying! Soul crushing anxiety. So, on the eve of the book release, I did what I learned to do staying sober in recovery--and what I've learned from the horses and what I urge in the book--CALL IN THE HERD! I sent an SOS message to my inner circle and asked for help, support, and love. Help me with my fear and help me celebrate. Two very different needs. The herd...

More than forty years have passed since pregnancy discrimination became illegal, yet pregnant workers are not always receiving the accommodations needed to ensure their wellbeing. Over the last decade the PWFA has been introduced many times but only recently passed the House in May of 2021 and then the Senate HELP committee in August of the same year.
