"Fifty Days of Nay," Congress by way of Hollywood. Where else would you get a cast like McConnell, Inhofe, and more!
While Moms Clean Air Force member, Julianne Moore wins the Oscar for best actress, and there’s a strange fascination with the new movie Fifty Shades of Grey, I have been focusing on a different story. It’s called Fifty Days of Nay. It’s the sad narrative...

Dorothea Lange was both a great photographer and a social activist. Check out this book written by her goddaughter, +Elizabeth Partridge
In the book, Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning, Lange’s “lifetime in photography” is presented with equal weight given to Lange’s intuitive eye for structure and composition, as well as to her burning commitment to social justice.

Get ready for the Repubs, and all the antics they have up their collective sleeves, to deter the EPA and traction on #ClimateChange. Yes, Sen. Inhofe and #Sen McConnell, I mean you fellows. Oh, and your funders, the Koch Brothers!
Looking ahead to 2015, a year with a new Congress that may look to delay climate action.

I went to the Community Board #8 meeting in the Bronx last night. I was impressed with how folks in my area are on top of the environmental concerns and pushing to make changes. It all starts at the local level!

I met +Jensine Larsen several years ago and was so impressed with the work she was doing at +World Pulse. Just wrote an article about her for +Gap Inc.

No. Her internship was here in Portland. She actually worked with writers and edited stories. Great experience.
 
Maybe someone could make Sen. James Inhofe sit down and read the +National Audubon Society report on climate change. My story for +Moms Clean Air Force about what it reveals:
Learn how birds are cautioning humans about the imminent threat of climate change.

My article for the +WomensMediaCenter on the doc by Mary Dore "She's Beautiful When She's Angry," highlights the unsung women of the Feminist Movement.
There is a crisis of representation in the media. We live in a racially and ethnically diverse nation that is 51% female, but the news media itself remains staggeringly limited to a single demographic.

LOVED THIS! No gents, your equipment doesn't warrant two seats!
It is the bane of many female subway riders, a practice with a name almost as off-putting as the act itself: manspreading. Now, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is targeting it with new ads.

Story

Writer/Artist/Activist
Introduction
I come out of the visual arts, with over 20 years as a practicing artist. As a curator, I have focused on amplifying the voices of women, with an emphasis on diversity.

These activities led to a parallel career in writing, activism, and new media. My area of concentration is women's issues, culture, and human rights.

I co-founded CultureID, a platform to amplify the work of those in the arts creating culture with political intent and social content.

I can always depend on Keith to handle my issues with the utmost consideration....which can be tough since I am the original Princess and the Pea. The slightest thing can create an issue for my vision. He has always been patient with me, and sticks with me until I can see properly. I can't say enough about how important that is. Kudos all around!

Love this place. I'm new to Riverdale, and have become addicted to the chocolate, mocha, apricot cake. Carrot cake is good, unless you are on a diet. A box of the lacey cookies make a great gift! Still lots of items I want to try. I usually make a piece of cake last for several nights. This way I don't have to feel guilty. Service very friendly. Ask for Valentina. Tell her Marcia sent you!
