The political is personal

I’m honored to be a Semifinalist for the Jerome Foundation’s Stakeholders Choice Award.  I’ll be putting together a sneak peak of a potential one-woman show on breaking down barriers, both those we create ourselves and those imposed by society, that keep us from connecting on a human level. So much of racism, homophobia, and other forms of xenophobia are born from imagined distance. I’ll be posting the date of my show and I hope you can come watch.  Thank you to all of the incredible people in my life who have inspired me, especially my friend Fritz who I wrote this poem with over the summer.
