Gimme An N!

My Kenny is working on what will be the 3D letters in the Nasty Women Memphis Art Exhibition.

Yes, that letter N is made from an old door, and it’s setting in my hallway with the unfinished floor!  If it gets any more grass roots than this, I don’t know how!  🙂

These letters will be bridged together with dowels, front to back, painted pink and covered in black mesh.

I can’t wait!

November 6, 2018

Remember this date November 6, 2018. That’s the date on which 33 senate seats, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and 14 governorship’s will be up for re-election. Put it on your calendar now and be prepared to be an informed voter. If you are worried, concerned, angry, disappointed about the direction the government is going this is the most effective way to make a change, stop complaining and start planning. Remember the president is only one cog in the government machine, and you can make effective change through voting for your local and state representatives, this is the check that can balance this situation. Pass it on…

Memphis Women’s March Brings 7-9K in Peaceful Protest

My husband, Kenny, and I were happy to join the courageous women, men and children marching in the Memphis Women’s March this morning! The expected number of 3,000 peaceful protesters nearly tripled in attendance at the Judge D’army Bailey Courthouse, where the march began. Speakers before the march were US Representative from TN, Steve Cohen, and Adrienne Bailey, widow of civil rights activist, Judge D’Army Bailey, who encouraged the attendants in their march and to take the long, hard, fight forward. It was spirit-lifting to see the turn-out of so many like-minded people, defending women’s, African-American, LGBTQ, immigrant, and individual rights during the march. Thank you to the organizers of this event, it was beautiful to be a part of this momentous movement.

Nasty Women Making History

The Knockdown Center’s programing “Stay Nasty” also raised over $8,000 for smaller non-profits benefiting women’s rights, bringing the grand total to over $50,000.
