It’s been a hard week, and in 2020 that’s saying something. From the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the utter lack of justice for Breonna Taylor, and with the ongoing pandemic, everyday can feel overwhelming.

With just five slow, calm breaths, you can make a big difference for your well-being. And when you’ve done that, we have five quick...

Walking in a sea of people towards the ballroom, I felt the weight of a long-sought goal coming to fruition. My brain spun on the fact that nine months later, I would be able to vote. It was February of 2012. I had lived in this country since 1979 when I came from Colombia as a seven-year-old girl. In my 40th year I was finally becoming a US citizen, and in that moment as a mother, as a mental health professional, and as a parenting educator, I understood that I was finally going to be given...

Shock. Outrage. We stand with the family and loved ones of Breonna Taylor, Black Lives Matter Louisville, the tens of thousands of activists in Kentucky, and the national Movement for Black Lives in calling for justice. There is no other way fair-minded people can react to the grand jury decision announced in Louisville today. We support the movement demands that three officers responsible for Breonna Taylor’s murder should have been fired, charged with murder, and had their pensions revoked...

The year my son Javier turned two, he and I spent a huge amount of time traveling around North Carolina and speaking to anyone who would listen about his healthcare needs. Javi has Down syndrome, and along with that he has many co-occuring conditions, including two holes in his heart, kidney and gastrointestinal reflux, severe obstructive sleep apnea, and a floppy airway. At that time, he did not have Medicaid coverage and my husband and I were relying on private insurance to help us access the...

The passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a deep, painful, immense loss for the nation. Her contributions were greater than words can express and her legacy is a country that is more fair, more just, and more healthy for women, people of color, and others whose rights have long been denied. Justice Ginsburg was a trailblazer, a pioneer, a mom, and a brilliant jurist whose body of work will live on and inspire us forever. She was rightly adored for her keen, unwavering commitment to justice. We take...
