Pennsylvania: Congrats Card to Speaker McClinton!

March 17, 2023
HISTORIC. Earlier this month Representative Joanna McClinton became the FIRST female majority leader and speaker of the PA House of Representatives. She's the second person of color to hold that role. OUR GIRLS ARE WATCHING! And we are too.

Learning to Need Others

February 20, 2023
Does this sound familiar? “I’m fine.” “Oh, I’ll be okay.” “I don’t want to be a bother.” “I just need to spend some more time thinking about it.” “I’ll figure it out.” These are some of the things we say to ourselves or others when we are in denial of our own needs.
