Grab ‘Em By The Midterms Rally This Week!

This week is the Grab Em By the Midterms Rally!

Sign Up! Come and get inspired!

 

Armchair Activism

This week the Parks System is taking comments about whether they should charge for protests outside the White House. Apparently the security costs are starting to weigh on the administration. Please let the government know what you think about this. Some inspirational comment starters include:

“Managing public lands for the benefit of the American people is what Congress funds the National Park Service to do. That includes demonstrators just as much as tourists or hikers. While the park service may be strapped for funds, it cannot balance its budget on the backs of people seeking to exercise their constitutional rights.” –ACLU

You have until Monday to comment so please do!

Personal Lesson for the Week

I learned about myself and others this week when forced to consider my own privilege and how it affects others. I watched this video and it helped me to see what I DON’T SEE. Maybe it will help you, too.

Art

And in conjunction with my racist revelations, I want to celebrate the art of Kara Walker, one of my favorites. I saw this panel once in MoMa in New York and it blew me away. This is called

Gone: An Historical Romance of a Civil War as It Occurred b’tween the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart

Kara Walker is amazing and if you have the chance to see her work, you should. She’s bold and inventive and she has so much to say.

Until next week! See you at the rally!!
