What did we first take to the streets about?
Yesterday’s National School Walkout, Ellen, the Pennsylvania special election upset, National Geographic’s racism, Gigi Gorgeous and Nats Getty, not ready for the 90s comeback, and so much more!
Perfume, ponchos, humanity, maps, grief, ghost stories, net neutrality, the Puerto Rican diaspora, nonbinary teens in California, black women running for office, and so much more!
Ericka Hart, Aram Han Sifuentes has turned protest into art, your octopus family is waiting, Hillary Clinton, Arizona prisons remain fucked, Jemele Hill, and so much more!
Dolly Parton, LaCroix, deportations abound, read Charlottesville locals, Atari, St. Vincent, FaceApp feelings, fighting white supremacy, and so much more!
