Trigger Warning towards the end, it won't be graphic and the trigger warning will be repeated. So I start with my bright side, what I'm asking you to support:

I'm an activist. A hippie. A mother. So many things, like everyone else is. My interests and passions are varied and vast.

I love to rage with my friends and turn the energy with exuberant humor to passionately discussing solutions. I'm so tired of complaints without ideas, without hope. Our problems are primarily human borne, I trust that solutions will be as well.

Currently, I'm the vice-Chair of Our Revolution Washington (Berniecrats) Coalition (OR-WaBC), Chair of Our Revolution Pierce County (ORPC), co-Chair of the Electoral Working Group (EWG) of the Tacoma-Pierce Democratic Socialist of America (TDSA), and Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) of 29-606 in the Democratic Party.

I participate in various media productions of OR-WaBC and take every opportunity gifted to me to participate in other groups' or people's media productions. I am developing my own program around Solutions. While most of my recent efforts have been centered around politics and will continue to, I have a craving to discuss problems not always seen as political (though I can usually tie them into politics, be it sugar ants or desertification, and I will as I already do).

My other day-to-day passion is my quarter acre in the heart of South Tacoma. My child and I have 14 fruit trees, numerous berry bushes, and so much more. It is too much for me alone. My goal is to host permaculture trainings and create an Urban Permaculture Program, blending it into my local political actions. I want each PCO to create a Precinct Committee in which there is a Sustainability Officer. We will write grants or create city/county programs to aid in lawn removal and food forest/garden installation. After installation, a permaculture property is easier to maintain than a standard urban yard, in addition to producing food it eases the lives of the elderly, infirm, and overworked. Urban food security, reduction in human effort, and for many, the elimination of fossil fuels in the maintenance of their property. Win. Win. Win.

I've also completed massage school, but due to unpleasant reasons that involve a living person, I'm left with debt to the school and without my license for now. However, I graduated 2nd in my class and have passed my state test. I look forward to moving forward with that as well.

These are the efforts and ideas that my Patrons will support.


***TRIGGER WARNING***


***Child Abuse-Incest-Police***


My little brother, Justin, slightly delayed and recently passed away. We got him when he was 10mo old. We formalized his adoption when he was about 2 1/2. Our parents (my mother and my step-father, the only father I know) divorced not long after. Simultaneously, our mother started a relationship with a police officer, a well known one. He had been a presenter in schools, the voice of local Crime Stoppers commercials, host of the Tacoma Police Department public access show, he had 2 radio shows on local am, one re: crime, the other food, he worked on the crime free multifamily housing task force, it seems everyone knew him, having been on the force longer than any other officer at the time of his retirement. Now our mother, she was working for Safe Streets, so she was out networking, block by block, working with the City Council, State Legislators, the District Attorney...she was well known as well, so it's no surprise that when my brother made public their sexual abuse of him, that it made the news.

I cannot fully explain what I went through, on the edge of the center of the storm. Professionals call me a Secondary Victim. It tore me up. It took my gregarious nature and turned me scared. I didn't want to leave my house. My family disintegrated, my friends stopped calling, and my partner lost patience. Now, nearly 13yrs later, I've had incredible healing, while still having more to do. 

I thought I'd never be in the public sphere as I once anticipated. Bernie Sanders changed that. I started with online chatter. I joined a Messenger thread. I chimed in, but made no effort to be the loudest or most frequent contributor. But...I'm fucking awesome and my new friends liked what I had to say. That is how I restarted my life. What was fear is now my story.

With my brother's passing (at the age of 30, to an undiagnosed heart condition), I've been freed to tell the story boldly, as concern for his well being had kept me quietly telling those near me in order to explain my persistent shortcomings and lingering anxieties without risk of him coming across his story in my words about the impact on me.
