#fbf to what feels like another world and another life but was really only 2 months ago. Pregnancy was an incredible time: Full of joyous celebration, true tests of patience and quiet moments of great solitude, uncertainty and fear. My greatest hope was that I could experience those months without public comment or exposure, without being asked by the outside world to define my experience or my feelings around it. Because until she was born everything felt truly undefined and open ended. Looking back now, I want to express an ocean of gratitude for the people who held this space for me, this privacy for me and for the time I was able to take to experience it. (Also arguing with paparazzi while 9 months pregnant helped bring out my inner mama bear so thanks for that🐻) Thank you @elizabethmessina for photographing me in such a strange and wonderfully beautiful time and for helping me celebrate my body and my transformation into motherhood.

For those in the path of the California wildfires, I hope you are safe and with those you love. If you can check out the link in my bio to help. These images ( #repost from @latimes ) are so frightening. Thank you to all the brave and tireless fire fighters who are risking their lives tonight.

This is America. We are a country in which shootings happen so frequently; someone could survive one only to be killed in another. Telemachus Orfanos, 27, survived the Las Vegas massacre last year. He was killed in the Thousand Oaks massacre late Wednesday evening. I’m too mad and scared to say more, so I’ll leave you with the words of his mother, Susan: “I don& #039 ;t want prayers. I don& #039 ;t want thoughts. I want gun control. I hope to God nobody else sends me any more prayers. I want gun control”

I love to participate in elections. I love to make my voice heard and cast my ballot for the candidates and the issues I believe in. But today taking my baby girl to the polls made me feel that much more invested and proud to participate in the future of this country. I want an America that believes climate change is real and that clean energy is the solution. I want an America that supports transgender rights. I want an America that is not afraid of those seeking asylum and will keep families together. I want an America that protects its citizens, not one that shoots them down in the streets and in schools. I want an America that offers health care for everyone and does not punish the sick, the disabled and impoverished. I want an America that believes women and values their experiences, their labor and their bodies equally to those of men. I want a better America. For her and for her future. #vote #voteyourchange

My good friends @trickbebe & @karlacarolann made a beautiful video this weekend to remind people what is at stake tomorrow and how important it is to participate. This is our country. This is our history. Let’s honor our anscestors. Those who fought to participate those who fought To protect us and this land. Those who fought to be heard and valued. Do not throw away their hard work. Do not throw away your future. #vote

I got you babe. To the moon and back. Watching you grow, blossom and navigate the storm of your 32 year has been absurdly inspiring. You have showed me what fragility is, what beautiful and grace are and you are the strongest woman I know. I am honored to call you my chosen sister, best friend and birthday twin. May your 33nd spin around the sun be so full of laughter, life and light that it outshines all the years that came before it. I’ll be right next to you soaking up your glory.

KNOW THE NAMES of your state’s congressional candidates. KNOW WHAT THEY STAND FOR for. Link in Bio will tell you everything you need to know about your state& #039 ;s candidate. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 For our under 25 American fans... HERE’S WHY IT MATTERS Quick civics lesson: All races below the top one, mistakenly viewed by many as the “most important” race (President, U.S. Senators, Congressmen, Governors), are called DOWN BALLOT RACES and they’re very, very important. They’re important because many of the candidates running in them are counting on you to ignore/not care, so they can be elected and start telling you how to live your life. The Federal elections/candidates get all the media attention, but State legislatures are where the real power is. Remember this. They can make your life easier or harder. The biggest voting impact you can make- that you will feel directly -is at the State level, not Federal. These elected officials make laws that affect your daily life. Clean water, health care access, public schools, among the biggies. You’re young, these are not immediate issues for you. But some laws they pass will still be in effect when they are. But the real kicker is: State representatives also make VOTING LAWS and create VOTING DISTRICTS, which directly decide whether or not YOUR VOICE is heard at all. In 34 states, state legislators draw the actual maps that decide how you’re represented at the Federal level. So filling State Houses with candidates you believe in and hold values you care deeply about is how you bring your will to Washington. This is why “down ballot” races (State level) are so important. These elected officials WILL speak for you, if you don’t show up. Show up. Please please vote down ballot. Again, check the link. It may FEEL like you cannot make a difference, but THIS IS NOT THE CASE: 82% of ALL state legislative seats are UP FOR RE-ELECTION on Nov. 6th. That’s a lot of new blood. Go from the ground up. Repour the foundation. Get after it. Stay informed, at the very least. The battle for progressive change in our country is not in Washington, it’s on your doorstep. @a_c_r_o_n_y_m
