During the last year plus of chaos and turmoil, many, including myself, have found ourselves doing things we'd never imagined and finding voices we'd never thought we'd need to find. I've been to countless rallies, designing posters for many, marshaling at others, emcee'ing at an End LGBTQ Persecution rally at the UN, attending local Democratic club meetings, activist gatherings, and workshops about the political process and organizing.
I'm now an elected NYC County Committee member—my first political party position ever. I was elected secretary of that group as well. I'm on the board of the West 12th Street Block Association and the steering committee of the 14th Street Coalition as well.
And I help run Sing Out, Louise!, a group of fierce, talented protest singers. We sing all over NYC and our membership and audience is growing. We've even started putting videos out into the world - my first ever directing projects. There's power in creativity and communityand solidarity.
Below are a few photos of my activist life. Stay tuned. There's always something new these days.
