Moms are a mighty force this election season. Through MomsRising’s Beacons of Hope program, moms-- and those who love moms!-- are engaging in massive nonpartisan voter engagement efforts targeting moms. Each of these 265 volunteers, or “Beacons of Hope Volunteer Fellow,” is assigned a list of 400-600 low-frequency mom voters. Throughout October, they are making one-to-one connections with these moms via text and phone calls to inspire them to vote. We asked these Beacons of Hope what inspired...

Monica Roberts , the original TransGriot , just passed away. She was an absolute titan. In the early blogging days I heard about her pioneering work, telling stories of people that hardly anyone was even thinking about at the time, especially online. She received a lifetime achievement award at the Creating Change conference that I attended in January this year in her home state of Texas, where she was very well known and respected in politics as well as the queer community. At the conference...

This moment in time, The Great Pause, has forced us to stay--to see and feel realities we have been able to run from for far too long. This has been a year of reckoning, for sure. Truths and wounds have risen to the surface. We now know deeply all that needs to...
