It’s my birthday! There’s only room for joy and celebration in my life today, so please turn your attention to these wonderful things that deserve celebrating this week:
I’m moving to the Bay! And my bestie, Amy is joining me for the adventure down!
Awesome community organizers in Washington are posed to stop predatory lending. Awesome immigrant women are organizing for comprehensive immigration reform. Awesome houseless rights organizers are working hard every day to stop bills like the one that will restrict sidewalk use in Oregon. Awesome Saudi Arabian women are organizing to fight ridiculous guardianship laws. Awesome youth in Zambia are learning to use social media as a tool to end gender-based violence. Pretty much there are all sorts of community organizers all over the world doing amazing, progressive, community-based work & they should be celebrated every day!
I discovered this amazing meme-driven blog on returned peace corps volunteers and silent laugh-cried for over an hour at my desk www.rpcvcallme.tumblr.com
I have the best friends ever, as evidenced here.
I got news this week, that like every week, some amazing survivors are enacting their resiliency, courage, creativity & hope for a different world
I have all sorts of things to celebrate on the day of my 27th year…I am learning and living and loving so much right now. I can barely contain myself–I’m like this:
Happy Hump Day all you beautiful people!
