November 8, 2016
"People need to vote because people haven't always been able to vote! I'm glad I didn't live back then because first women couldn't vote and Black people couldn't vote and I'm a girl AND I'm Black!" - Elena, age 6. "It's important to vote so we get what we want!" - JoJo, age 5 "Mama says, 'Vote...

I vote on behalf of the young battered me who didn’t have a prayer.

November 5, 2016
I am voting on behalf of a 25-year-old battered woman and single mother who didn’t have a prayer. She was me. This is my story: In 1980 I met and married the most beautiful boy I’d ever seen and I thought my life would be a fairy tale. Within a week of marriage I learned it was a nightmare instead...

How Your Parenting Style Resembles Our Political System

November 2, 2016
I was embarrassed that I had welled up to the point where my nose and my eyes could no longer function properly. I attempted not to take a huge breath or blink since tears were going to pour. From the stage I listened to Heather C. McGhee tell all of us that we needed to listen and understand one...

Como Se Parece la manera en Que Criamos a Nuestros Hijos a Nuestro Sistema Político

November 2, 2016
Me avergüenza admitir que me emocioné hasta el punto en que mis ojos y mi nariz no podían funcionar apropiadamente. Traté de no respirar ni pestañar para evitar un chorro de lágrimas. Desde el escenario Heather C. McGhee nos hablaba de la importancia de escucharnos y comprender nuestra condición...

To the Women Who Are Afraid

November 2, 2016
There’s a nagging suspicion inside you that something is wrong. He calls you names. He denies your feelings. He talks over you; yells at you; humiliates you; and re-writes reality, including the reality of what happened to you. Maybe you wouldn’t call it abuse, or can’t. Maybe he’s never lifted a...

Yesterday, I got out my vintage orange pantsuit, turned up the volume on RESPECT by Aretha Franklin, put pen to ballot, affixed stamp to envelope, and inserted mail into mailbox to vote! (And I confess to feeling oddly giddy and empowered while voting in my bright orange pantsuit.) It’s really...

Why I Vote...

October 28, 2016
I was asked recently, for a different project, to sum up why I vote, in one or two sentences. Yeah, in just one or two sentences, not an easy task.

Paid Family and Medical Leave is everywhere in #NH

October 24, 2016
Things are certainly changing different this election season. While there is a lot that is deeply disturbing, and a lot I will not want to remember after 2016 is said and done, but one thing that is worth acknowledging is that the discussion moved forward for families, and that Paid Family and...

Whoa, postcard campaign is EXPLODING!

October 21, 2016
Last week we asked important supporters like you to tap into your super powers and help turn out the women's vote. Well, A LOT OF YOU flexed your superhero muscles and volunteered to send handwritten notes to women voters, urging them to vote. WHICH IS AWESOME! But… reaching as many critical women...
