Greetings, dear Reader!
My friends and brothers have co-founded a nonprofit that has been KILLING IT when it comes to promoting equity in education.
Through the Leadership Brainery, diverse and first-generation student leaders are empowered and given the tools necessary to succeed and change their communities.
I’ve been a part of the LB family since its inception, and if you’ve been reading my work, you know the Quaker values of Community and Equality mean a lot to me.
That’s why I am asking you to consider giving to their end of year campaign. It’s a chance to let your gift of any amount go toward changing the world for a student, and for us all.

Thanks for Reading! Be Blessed!
How can we give lesser worth
To those Queens who gave us birth?
How can we dare to pay them less,
Yet load them up with extra stress?
How can we their bodies chide,
Expecting to be let inside?
How can we their beauty doubt
And shush their voices with our clout?
When at last will we all see
That there’s but one humanity?
Man or woman, trans or cis
We can do better than this.
The air, that tree
All of life, to me,
Is something to treat carefully.
We cannot let
That we might make a difference yet.
Clean up the woods,
And be more giving with our foods
Do not despise
Those suffering eyes
That plead for peace, that lofty prize.
Do not let sex
Determine who gets bigger checks.
When love is done,
The battle’s won,
For one can’t change hearts with a gun.
Or we will fall.
Hear and heed creation’s call!
I have decided to introduce some feminism into my work. I tend to imply it, but someone I deeply care for reminded me how important it is to name such things. Be sure to check out Victoria’s stuff at her blog, “Little Pictures Big Thoughts!” Peace. ❤
Until both sexes
In every expression
Are free, no one is.
