This week, I felt a little more hopeful, or at least motivated? Motivated with a side of jet lag and rain-induced fatigue. I reached out to get involved with two local politicians that line up with my values (Annie Andrews for Congress; Joe Cunningham for Governor). I am helping with a fundraiser for Annie on July 13th here in Charleston (come, if you are local!) and have a meeting set up with Joe’s team that week. It is important to me to do everything I can to help get these people elected. If you are looking for more ways to help and get involved, my friend Jess pulled together some amazing actions to take in a post-Roe America.
Besides that, this was just a packed week of work! A shoot, several meetings, planning for a video content day (I have hired a young person to help me!), ETC. Wishing you a wonderful long weekend.
