Interview: Clinics pushing for abortion pills encounter resistance during pandemic

A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by Zach Vallese about the state of abortion access during COVID-19. We talked self-managed abortion, SCOTUS, and ways folks can get involved. Give it a read! “With the anticipated increased traffic to the district, Black says it’s even more important now to look to alternative ways to perform […]

I’m in print! Washington Jewish Week: Why is this Women’s March different from all the others?

I’m in print for the 1st time! This is my column for Washington Jewish Week about the Women‘s March. This is the first time being printed since my The Eagle days as a staff columnist so I’d like to formally thank Nickolaus Mack and Haley Samsel for pushing me (read: putting up with me).

Interview with WAMU: Voices Of The 2020 Women’s March In D.C.

My fourth year at the Women’s March, my second leading a Zioness contingent. It’s been a joy, it’s been a struggle, it’s been some of the most important work I’ve done. WAMU spoke with me and my fellow Zioness marchers about why we showed up. What was written was not quite what I said, but […]

Mayyim B’Sasson: A Joyful Mikvah Rededication Ceremony

Wednesday night, many months of hard work came to a beautiful conclusion. Though it feels like I talk about it a lot (and scream it from the rooftops) many of my friends don’t quite understand what I do when I say I work at the mikvah. I was hired in August of 2018 to aid […]

Happy 3rd Activist Anniversary!

Yesterday, Facebook reminded me that exactly three years ago I attended my first ever protest. It was the first time I took my feminism to the streets, the first time I demonstrated publically that I practice what I preach. And it scared the shit out of me. I was 19 and, objectively, fairly new to […]

I’m so flattered and excited to share this video that my good friend Sasha made of me for her Backpack Video Journalism class.
