ACT NOW: Reject Betsy DeVos' nomination for Secretary of Education!

January 30, 2017
Betsy DeVos in charge of my child’s education scares me. When questioned by the Senate committee she could not answer basic questions about education policy and declined to commit to protecting funds for public schools. She would not commit enforcing gun-free zones at schools, to enforcing laws designed to prevent and punish sexual assault on college campuses, and to supporting measures that would help ensure that children with disabilities are well-served by our schools.

Control our Money, Control Our Destiny: Women’s March 2017

January 26, 2017
I attended the Women’s March in Washington DC over the weekend. It was exhilarating and gave half a million participants an inspiring feeling of “yes we can!” I am still on a high from the sense of power in numbers and community I felt on that day. One of the speakers, Kierra Johnson, the Executive Director of URGE, pointed out in her speech that “If someone else controls your body, it is they and not you that control your destiny.” Amen. I only wish that the women’s march could have articulated a parallel message: if you don’t control your money, you don’t control your destiny either.
