I am planning on going to Sister Giant this weekend to be a part of a discussion for a shift in politics. I created a page for folks to help fund my trip.
A friend of mine asked me what I was going to do with what I learn at Sister Giant. Tonight I made this video:
Marianne Williamson has created Sister Giant in order to “help create a new conversation in American politics, one in which principles of higher consciousness form a new foundation for political involvement.”
1. At a rate of 23.1%, child poverty in the United States ranks second highest among 35 developed nations (second only to Romania);
2. The U.S. currently incarcerates more of our people than any nation in the world, or any nation in history;
3. Without a Constitutional Amendment to override the effects of the Supreme Court decision “Citizens United,” money will continue to wield increasingly undue influence on American politics.
The Women’s Campaign School at Yale will be there as well, discussing the ins and outs of leading a political life AND a blueprint for moving forward.
I could really use your help in getting there. Although my finances have been incredibly difficult over the last few years—I have a voice, and a mind, and a heart—and I want to be a part of a solution that will benefit all of us.
I will be leaving AZ on November 9th and driving to Los Angeles. I will drive back on November 12th. I am going with two friends – hopefully more. In fact, why not join us?
