A Better World Starts Here is Now Available!

My new book A Better World Starts Here: Activists and Their Work presents activists doing inspiring work in their communities and beyond through an inclusive and far-reaching examination. It is a book of struggle, but also a book of hope, joy, and liberation. This unique and diverse collection of 25 interviews provides an intersection of different forms of activism that are all committed to eradicating various types of injustice and oppression. Examples include anti-racist action, feminist and women’s rights work, art activism, animal rights work, LGBTQ activism, environmental activism, food justice action, human rights work, and mindfulness practice within an activist context.

A portion of sales from this book will be donated quarterly to Activists of Color featured in the collection.

Voyage LA Magazine and Upcoming Exhibit

I was recently interviewed by Voyage LA Magazine about my life and work. The editors were great to work with. I was so happy to share some stories about my family.

Another update I'm excited about is that one of my collages was accepted for a Collage Artists of America show. The opening is in Burbank, California, on Friday evening, May 3 from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Betsy Lueke Arts & Creative Center.

These positive things with my creative life really keep me afloat, especially with all the difficult things life can throw at us.

I hope some good and special things are happening for you.

Love, Stacy

I'm happy to share that my Love Activism related art pieces will soon be available for sale in Long Beach, California, at an awesome art store and space called MADE by Millworks. This is the third location for my art and I hope it will continue to grow, since it is part of my peaceful and therapeutic practice that I get to share and hopefully inspire others with.

First Newsletter Issue Scheduled for Spring 2018

Thank you to everyone who signed up for the Love Activism newsletter. I did not anticipate how busy I would be with my last book coming out and finishing the manuscript for the Love Activism book! My regular job as a librarian and professor also keeps me plenty busy. :-)

The first issue of the newsletter has been delayed. I have decided to create it to correspond with the publication of Love Activism, which will be out in the spring.

Thank you again for joining the community and your interest in Love Activism.

Much love, Stacy
