My activism most of the time takes me less onto the streets or in groups but more into writing and blogging. I am currently designing a blog with a friend who is a blog/marketing/design genie that will be primarily an OpEd, news, culture and political blog with articles and commentary by me and other people I know who are engaged in various ways with advocacy and activism.

I am a late-to life protester and feminist. Writing illustrated memoir has caused me to examine, in depth, my purpose in living, so I march for anything related to human rights.
