Help us turn the tables on Congress and MOMibuster THEM!

April 15, 2022
Instead of a tool that blocks the progress moms need, this MOMibuster will actually work for parents, sending the message that we want and need care policies that allow us to both support and care for our families – a care infrastructure that includes affordable child care, free pre-K, paid family and medical leave, home- and community-based services, quality maternal health care for all of us, prescription meds we can afford, a tax system that supports families instead of lining the pockets of wealthy corporations and billionaires, and more.

Tax Day action needed on the Child Tax Credit!

April 13, 2022
Did you know Tax Day is next Monday (April 18th)? I know….it really creeped up on me this year as well! This is the perfect opportunity for us to spread the word about our values, our concerns, and what our families really, truly need: Congress to take action to make sure billionaires pay their fair share in taxes AND extend the monthly Child Tax Credit checks.

Brooklyn

April 12, 2022
This morning, my phone lit up with news alerts about another mass shooting. When I saw “Brooklyn” in the headlines, my heart stopped. How many times have my husband and I walked the streets of Brooklyn and rode the subway during trips to see our daughter, or to visit friends?

I would make space for myself with my animals, writing, recovery, walking, hiking, nature. But I had to squeeze it in. Just when I would scratch the surface of my own...
