“First, we marched. Now we Huddle. We will gather together in our neighborhoods all over the world to define our next steps, and envision how to transform the energy we saw at Women’s Marches into local and national action.

Huddle (n.) – a small group of people holding an informal conversation”

I was part of a recent huddle in Los Angeles. It was an amazing experience to feel like we aren’t alone in our thinking about the current political climate. We talked about what is going on in our country and what we could do to make a difference.

This is one of my next steps. I am curating a mail art show at Brainworks gallery in August 2017.
