Here at Awakening, we care about sexual health as much as we do about pleasure. That includes access to safe and legal abortions. Colorado is one of these "trigger law" states, which is absolutely terrifying. It's been a tough news week, so practice some extra self care this weekend to emotionally prepare to tackle this nonsense. Stay angry, stay woke, get loud 💪🏼 We can do this together! XOXO, Tory. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Repost @ladyelectricco: The Supreme Court just lost a crucial defender of Roe v Wade, Anthony Kennedy. Only 17 states have laws that protect abortion. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, abortion would immediately be illegal in 33 states because of what is known as a "trigger law." Start taking action via your local government! If your state does not have laws that protect the right to an abortion start fighting for them now!!!

Now that its out the way let's talk,Emotional depression. I see it a lot looked at but never truly talked about until someone is over the edge or near killing themselves or too late so this is just a deeper look into my mind and thoughts of a mental state,I've always believed in logic before most things as weird as it sounds since I was raised in a very religious household it always bothered me when I woke up with no reason to or stayed up at night asking for purpose my father and Mother weren't supportive my friends didn't understand they just told me to get over it but a huge key point is. You can't get over it I don't know how many times I've seen people image link depression to chains and its accurate its scary to have to drive to shower or to eat or to anything besides be sad so going though school I was reckless worried sad and neglectful It pushed me deeper into my sadness but logical I had no reason to be sad and that made me angry,but I'll cut it short for now its 5:46am and I wanted to shine some light on the beginnings of Depression.~James💎
I am so SO so proud to be part of such a powerful champion network... I am constantly in awe of and inspired by the women in my life! My sister @nicoleamberphd is truly taking dreams, passions and opinions, turning them into plans and TAKING ACTION!! Check out her event on April 7th, 7:30pm in Pasadena, CA @sistersupportorg If you know a woman working in Hollywood please share! More info below! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• "I've recently started the Center for Women in Hollywood @cfwih a place for women and like minded men to gather and create.
One of our programs is the Women in Hollywood Circle. This is a private evening for women of conversation, connection, healing, and real talk. We will explore how the "status of women in Hollywood" actually affects us as people, as women, as members of different ethnic groups and identities.
When women gather in a circle, we change the world.
Remember to talk back to your screens, we are more than we see.
Hope to see you there!!"
