Since Last We Spoke, 1-22-18

I had the pleasure of attending a night of arts and empowerment at the synagogue we attend here in DC. Both Ilyse Hogue from NARAL and Fatima Goss Graves from the National Women’s Law Center spoke (among others), and as I listened, I could only think about how everything being discussed directly related to the work we do. We are so much more than collecting evidence, and I hope everyone doing this work is able to see, expansively, our role in the health of our communities. It was a really thought-provoking evening.

Plenty to keep us occupied this weekend on the interwebs. I didn’t make it to the march this year, but I followed along online, and was thrilled with the sustained movement as hundreds of thousands showed up around the world. Here’s what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:
