I was on the NBC Nightly News tonight!
I was asked to contribute my thoughts about 'Our Bodies, Ourselves' in relation to being a contributor for the 40th anniversary edition, as a women's health & reproductive rights activist, as a Latina and as a mom. I was humbled to be asked to help with the latest edition and was floored when asked to speak about that experience on national TV.
I'm are 2:34 in the video, but you should watch the whole segment. It is an honor to be in a piece with such trail blazing women.
Thanks for visiting if you came via the segment! Especially my friends who arrived via Brian Williams. And to my coworkers who have now discovered this blog...hi!
WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
