The Women's March Oakland


A lot of us were there but, in the crush, we didn't all connect.  

100,000 marchers!


Congratulations to our Program Manager Alison Mata for her amazing work as co-lead organizer of the Oakland March.

I Am the Essence of Love

(Ode to Mr. Captain of the ships of fools)

I am not your convenient vagina, not your booty call, not your punching bag, or the brunt of your jokes, your sick excuse of a reason! On the contrary, I am the opposite of hate, the complement and birth of the nation — me and my nature, my ovaries, my uterus, my determination. My voice matters. Respect my body (collective) or forever feast on the famine, the rotting flesh of war.
