For Some of Us the Holidays Are Just…Hard

For Some of Us the Holidays Are Just…Hard jemerman November 18, 2021

As we head into the holiday season, I am acutely aware of how much different this year is going to be than previous ones. I will be celebrating without my mom for the first time. My mother died in January 2021, and I'm still dealing with the unexpected waves of grief that wash over me, sometimes out of nowhere. As I head into this first winter holiday season without her, I'm not quite sure I know what to expect, other than everything is going to be very different.

Reimagining Hanukkah Gift-Giving jemerman November 18, 2021

There are a lot of creative ways to make Hanukkah meaningful when we pause to ask ourselves a few good questions before automatically going into shopping mode.

Reflecting on Transgender Awareness Week in 2021

Reflecting on Transgender Awareness Week in 2021 urjadmin November 16, 2021

Transgender Awareness Week is a chance to educate the public. It is important for people who are not part of the trans community to understand the oppression transgender and gender-expansive people face every day. While it is always important to affirm trans identities, Transgender Awareness Week provides an opportunity to center the voices of trans and gender-expansive people.

In This Season of Giving Thanks, Acknowledge the Tribal Land Upon Which You Live

In This Season of Giving Thanks, Acknowledge the Tribal Land Upon Which You Live jemerman November 15, 2021

Acknowledging the tribal land you live on (whether it is past or current tribal land) honors the communities who once lived there and whose land was brutally stolen from them.
