The RISERS program will help participants learn how our federal government works, how they can advocate for their communities for family-friendly policies, and have access to opportunities to put those skills into practice to create change. They learn how to share their stories, talk to lawmakers, mobilize their fellow parents, and become leaders in their own communities.

SPREAD THE WORD! Immigrants are giving their all to build and contribute to this country! Baseless attacks against immigrants are ramping up and it’s up to us to push back! Certain politicians and their greedy lobbyists hurt everyone by handing kickbacks to the rich, defunding our schools, and threatening families with cuts to healthcare and other programs that give us the tools to thrive. Then they turn around and point the finger for our hard times at new immigrants. It’s up to us to correct...

Summer is here and our kiddos are out of school and while it may be all fun and games for them, parents are often stuck scrambling to find child care options before the summer season even begins. While kids may be happy about it – summer often sends parents into a spiral that starts way before the summer season begins. For many parents and caregivers, it means having to figure out what we are going to do while summer is out for ten to twelve weeks in the year…and if you’re a parent that has...

5 Fabulous LGBTQ+ Books in Spanish!
The following is a pile of books that came recommended, won awards, or are books I've heard about for years, all written for Spanish speakers and about the LGBTQ experience. In Las Aventuras de China Iron, author Gabriela Cabezon Camara rewrites Martín Fierro from a feminist, LGBTQ, and postcolonial perspective. China Iron travels across Argentina by covered wagon, learning about the cultures, languages, and environment along the way.

While Pride month continues to bloom, I’m inspired and motivated by the many incredible Granite Staters who are working to build a better and more inclusive New Hampshire. I was so excited when I met Bethany Murabito (she/her) in the halls of the state house this spring when we instantly connected over our fierce love for the LGBTQIA+ community and our cat eyeliner sharp enough to… well, if you know you know!

On the radio show this week we cover what’s going on with the attacks on abortion, birth control, IVF, and reproductive healthcare – and what to do to help turn the trend around; we dive into how sharing your story changes policy; we get tips on supporting LGBTQ+ people in our family and communities; and we hear how the far right is using wedge issues and disinformation to pit voters against each other.

Washington is facing a child care crisis. According to the Washington Department of Children, Youth and Families, it’s estimated more than 600,000 Washington kids who need care because all available parents are working currently aren’t getting state licensed child care. The cost of high-quality early learning and child care is simply too high and too hard to find. The median cost for child care has increased a staggering 74 percent in the last decade. Where affordable options exist, they are...

As a Granite State mom, I’m heartbroken and outraged that we’ve been working to defeat yet another sports ban in our state this year. HB 1205 – which seeks to ban transgender girls from participating in girls' sports from grades 5 through 12 – goes against everything we should stand for, especially during Pride Month! The fact that we’re discussing legislation that would require girls to present birth certificates or, unbelievably, undergo genital inspections to play sports is not only absurd...
