June 26, 2022
It was July 21, 2021, and my son, Brandon, had just turned fifteen two weeks before. As I sat in the pediatric therapy office and listened to what I already knew, what I had been fighting for with doctors and insurance red tape for what seemed like forever, I was in anger and disbelief at just how badly the entire system had failed my child.

Florida families of kids under five are finding out that they may need to wait even longer for vaccines

June 16, 2022
I’m so freaking mad today. Our family and families across the state with kids under the age of 5 are so close - SO CLOSE - to having vaccines for our kids.

Florida is the only state that did not meet the deadline to order the new, COVID-19 vaccines for children under the age of 5 to be shipped when approved, which is expected in days. You read that right. The ONLY state.

On the radio show this week, we cover Roe v. Wade, Liberate Abortion, and the fight for bodily autonomy; why working to protect our democracy is still very, very important; how we can get to equality in both unpaid and paid work — and a new Fair Play documentary film that’s coming out now; and we close the show hearing about the latest with the infant formula crisis and how you can lend a hand.

Father's Day, the gift of time

June 15, 2022
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, papas, pop-pops, g-pops. My little one calls me dada, I wear the badge proudly. This is Father’s Day #2 for your boy and I cannot express how excited I am. I’m in disbelief that I have a 1 year old already. Time has passed so quickly.
