Support Rise, Inc.

Fam,

Some of the people I love most have been raped by those closest to them.

Some of the people I love most have struggled against a system that protects their abusers.

I often hesitate to offer support when others ask, but for them? Yes. Of course. Without question.

So I support Rise, Inc.’s fight to claim rights for rape survivors around the world.

You can further the cause by signing their petition to pass the United Nations Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights Resolution.

The act is small, but the need is great. Let us come together in service of that need.

The petition needs 200,000 signatures and we are so close.

Sign for those who have suffered violence.

Love,

Lauren

In 2014, tired of my pop culture rants, my mom told me, "You should start a blog!" In 2015, needing a place to gush about the new Star Wars trilogy, I created this site. In 2016, while working an insane schedule at the local bakery, I stopped writing. That same year, I moved to Seattle. Picture every fresh-faced young woman you've ever seen stepping out of a taxi in a movie. That was me...only with a lot more anxiety and shorter hair. Living here has been a trip. I'm not always happy, but I find plenty of stuff to write about. I love to call out, complain, overreact, analyze, and reimagine. This site contains the fruit of that labor.
