I also volunteer with local organizations around the Washington, DC area; make jewelry; am an avid reader; and raise money annually for the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk in memory of my grandma, LaVerne Brown. I am involved in feminist and women’s issues, through my writing, reading and various organizations.
My reading centers on: history (political, military, modern America), environmental issues, feminist theory and classic literature. I follow left leaning news like a good little liberal.
I gave up meat in September 2011 and share my cooking, and readings in the area of food politics on Tumblr.
Originally from Chicago, I moved South for college and never looked back. I am a Carolina girl at heart, randomly speak Southern, and have found myself living on the Mason Dixon line, unsure which side I prefer.
Help Me Help Others:
Each year I participate in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Memory Walk to raise money for research to find a cure, treatment and prevention.

Violence Against Women: Ending Domestic Violence
I may have left a job at a domestic violence agency, but I could not walk away from the issue and the survivors. One in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Please consider a donation, either of money or goods, to help those in your area, or visit the National Network to End Domestic Violence to donate and learn more.
