Feminism back by popular demand…
Beautiful & Inspirational day in Morristown! It was great to see the new NJ Governor Phil Murphy and first lady Tammy Murphy show up, share, and represent! Highlights for me also included speeches by Kim Gaddy, Environmental Justice Organizer at Clean Water Action, and writer/advisor Dr. Khyati Joshi, the First Vice-President of ISAAW, Inspiring South Asian American Women. I have to give three cheers for the sign language speakers, whom I couldn’t help but watch translate every word with gestural clarity and conviction. Thanks to NJ 11th for Change for their organization in making this march a passionately peaceful one. May we continue to awaken consciousness, interconnectedness, and the rights and roles of all women in our world with love and respect.
Love, Not Hate, Makes America Great!
