How do I even begin to capture the enormous legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg? The past few days have been unyielding. In the midst of the whirlwind, I found time to put my grief into words for Alma about how much RBG meant to me as a queer, Jewish activist fighting for abortion access.
I’m really honored to have been voted onto the Access to Reproductive Care and Health (ARCH) abortion fund board last night. I can’t think of a truer form of mutual aid/community care than funding abortion at a clinic where I also escort!

Very excited to see my (very) short New Year’s resolution make it into the print issue of Lilith Magazine! I am on this list with some very incredible people, heroines of mine, who have much fuller resolutions than I do, but fear not! I have a new piece on what it means to be an […]
