How often do you as a woman consider: How Climate Anxiety Is Shaping Family Planning?

How often do you as a woman consider:  How Climate Anxiety Is Shaping Family Planning?

In recent months, the notion of family planning as a means of fighting climate change has emerged from the eco-warrior fringe and entered the mainstream public conversation. Last winter, on the Facebook page, BirthStrike, a group of about 650 people based in Britain, have pledged to forgo having children because of “the severity of the ecological crisis.” One post BirthStrike post shared the following: “For several months after her daughter was born in 1991, Lori Day had terrifying anxiety dreams about failing to protect her baby. Decades later, the recurring nightmares about her daughter’s safety have returned, triggered by the prospect of…

The blessings of legacy with Karen and Cheyenne Harris

The blessings of legacy with Karen and Cheyenne Harris

Legacy is about life and living. It’s about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future. The world isn’t connected only by molecules. It’s connected by stories, traditions, memories, hopes, and dreams. We are connected by the legacies passed down from those who came before us and the legacies we will pass down to those who come after us. English writer Dorothy Sayers, “Paradoxical as it may seem, to believe in youth is to look backward; to look forward, we must believe in age.” Today I have two guests that present legacy through different lenses.…

New weapons in the fight against human trafficking revealed with advocate Ms. Anne Basham

New weapons in the fight against human trafficking revealed with advocate Ms. Anne Basham

Researchers have found that sex traffickers often target children and youth with a history of maltreatment, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, and minimal social support. About 10,000 children a year suffer the horrors of commercial sexual exploitation in the United States. Each victim on average is forced to have sex more than five times a day. Yet the buyers who fuel the child sex trade are seldom held accountable. Most just blend back into their families, jobs, and neighborhoods. My guest at the table today is a wonderful resource to educate us about the human trafficking space. Beyond that, she is also an expert and advocate in the…

What About the Children? Courageous Conversation with Susan Young about Human Trafficking and her Daughter..

Dollar-for-dollar, human trafficking in America is far worse than it is overseas. It is a market that is growing exponentially, putting $975 million in the pockets of human traffickers every year. Every 2.5 hours, a child is taken by human traffickers. Seven years is the average lifespan of a child victim once taken. Ninety-six percent of trafficking victims are female. Every trafficked child is purchased for sex 5.4 times a day. Human traffickers use any tool available to them to connect with potential victims. Contrary to popular belief, these predators rarely kidnap victims but rather employ psychological manipulation to get…

Women’s History Month Celebrates the Fact That Truth is of No Color

Women's History Month Celebrates the Fact That Truth is of No Color

 “The 19th Amendment had first been introduced in Congress in 1871. But Congress’ unwillingness to pass it meant women could only vote in states that had passed woman’s suffrage laws. By 1919 that had come to include 27 states, but not New Hampshire. Granite state women would have to wait for the state of Tennessee to become the 36th state to pass the 19th Amendment before they could vote for President in 1920.”[1]And there is so much more to do! Join me in a fascinating, energizing, educational, and empowering discussion about how African American women participated in the battle to…

Women's History Month Celebrates Service Women of the Vietnam War

Women’s History Month is celebrating veterans and active-duty military who keep us and have kept us out of constant harm’s way, often at great costs. Considering this is the year after the 100th year anniversary of WWI, we are reminded that war is a part of human history. My goal is to share diverse war stories across the spectrum of age, gender, and race to include family impact and cultural legacies. The Vietnam war was my coming of age war. I became immersed in and confused by the concurrent war at home, about the necessity of US involvement, while at…

A Voice From the Future with Tommi Crump and Tommi’s Tales

A Voice From the Future with Tommi Crump and Tommi's Tales

How do YOU spell Legacy? Ray Bradbury believes, “Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built, or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way, so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you are there. It does not matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into…
