17 February 2017


Over the past few weeks, I've realized there are a few things that will go a long way in helping me get through the next four years with my sanity intact if I could only have them once a month: marches, panels featuring powerful, influential women (like the one I went to with Angela Davis), and long weekends. I've had all of them this month, and we're coming up on another long weekend.


I can't say that I have any plans, other than hoping that no one breaks a bone again and possibly turning off my CNN notifications. I might get crazy and go to Costco. Maybe I'll try to make a lasagna- I can never get it right.

I hope your weekend is just as exciting. Even moreso, if you're up to it.

Here's some links to get you through the day.

Because it is President's Day weekend, and because it's important, here's a poem on why we shouldn't forget that U.S. presidents owned slaves.

I have a soft spot for anyone who uses their platform for good. Or to troll Trump. Diesel is doing just that with their new ad campaign.

And here's Nike's new anti-discrimination campaign.

You might remember Marley Dias, the young girl who set out to collect over 1,000 books featuring girls of color. She's now publishing an activism guide for kids.

Those in select cities will be able to see Hidden Figures for free on the 18th (tomorrow).

Love is love is love, and it looks like the NFL knows that based on this PSA.

Speaking of love- never enough Barack and Michelle.

Did you know that the founder of Little Caesars was an upstanding person who, among other things, secretly paid Rosa Parks's rent for years?

Here's a list of nearly twenty movies available on Netflix or Hulu, compiled for Black History Month, and so important to watch to stay socially aware.

Here's a video as if Adele's "Hello" was about calling congress. Watch it when you can have the volume on.

Have you sent a postcard to President Bannon?

I really wish that missed connections for parents was a real thing.

A porn site is rerouting all Utah users to a sex-ed site, which is fantastic considering Utahns consume a lot of porn but have very little sexual education.

I'm sort of a sucker for packaging and I'm not opposed to this food packing made of bamboo, nor am I opposed to the fact that it cuts down on trash.
