A Festivus Miracle, Perhaps?

Posted by Whitney on December 14, 2012 at 9:45 AM Comments comments (2)

It's Festivus… for the rest of us!


I remember as though it was yesterday, me, so confident that the blessing I now call Riley was going to be a girl. A girl I could dress up in pink, bows, and animal print. One that I could take shopping and we'd just have a girlie old time together.


But, alas, he was to be a boy. I panicked. What in the WORLD would I do with a boy? I was soon comforted with the fact that everyone says little boys love their ma...

Catching Up ... Sort of!

Posted by Whitney on October 23, 2012 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (2)

Phew! So I’ve neglected this blog entirely too much over the last few weeks. While I’m not one for excuses, I figure moving cross country might work in this situation. Not that anyone reads this blog that doesn't already know this, but after spending the last several years seeking to inspire the minds of America’s future and working as an activist on the ground in Texas, I took a giant leap and moved to Washington, D.C. at the end of September.

Continue the RNC Rule Changes Fight - Stop the #RNCPowerGrab

Posted by Whitney on August 28, 2012 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (1)

Contrary to widely reported news, a successful compromise has NOT been reached on the RNC Rules Changes fight. I have pasted the most relevant recent updates from delegates and Rules Committee Members at the end of this post.


The RNC attempted another round of trickery by floating, to the media before the delegates, a "compromise" eliminating rule 15/16 but NOT rule 12 which STILL gives them the power to change rules between conventions - thus, providing an opening to go bac...

Grassroots Call To Action: Tampa Delegates Must Read

Posted by Whitney on August 26, 2012 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (0)

A storm is brewing in Tampa and it's not just Hurricane Isaac. Yes, it's cliche and the statement has been used all over the place for the last ten days to describe threats such as a tropical storm, Vice President Joe Biden, and anarchist's attempts to block basic services and access to the convention.

Women: Take Charge. Be the Force, not the Tool.

Posted by Whitney on August 21, 2012 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (2)

I love working grassroots events and observing the ever increasing numbers of women getting involved - really taking charge and giving back through activism. Women have their finger on the pulse of their families and communities. They know where the REAL action happens (and it isn't in Washington).  Limiting the power of government and returning control where it belongs is a fundamental belief that most women I talk to hold dear. 


So why are so many women easily ma...
